The researcher of the project “The resignification of the woman-victim in popular culture” Emma Gómez Nicolau presented the paper “El ‘testimonio ético’ como modelo analítico en la comunicación para el cambio social” (“‘Ethical testimony’ as analytical model in communication for social change”) at the Vi Ibero-American Congress on Qualitative Research, which took place in La Alberca (Salamanca) July 12-14, 2017. The text, co-authored with the PI of the team, María José Gámez Fuentes, theoretically substantiates the need to resort to the concept of ‘ethical testimony’ within the framework of studies about the representation of gender violence and to operationalise it from four dimensions of analysis: the relationship between the person who testifies and whoever bears witness, the content of the testimony, the narrative construction of vulnerability and resistance, the link between the particular complaint and the general context of social struggle.
This study involves the epistemological rationale for the methodology of analysis that both authors proposed together with a third project partner, Rebeca Maseda García, in the article “Celebrities, violencia de género y derechos de las mujeres: ¿hacia una transformación del marco de reconocimiento?” (“Celebrities, gender violence and women’s rights: towards a transformation of the framework of recognition?”), which was published last year in the Revista Latina de Comunicación Social (“Latin Journal of Social Communication”).
