Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article is about survival and resistance in the context of armed conflicts, such as the one in Colombia. The story of Anna, a “Total Llanera woman” was constructed during the inquiry “Narratives of Surviving and Restoration” conducted in Manizales, Colombia. Working within a socioconstructionist framework and with narrative therapy assumptions, the inquiry was designed to comprehend the survival process of people affected by the armed conflict, through a narrative and action research process. The story of Anna was analyzed using the Listening Guide Method, which intended to offer a way of tuning into the polyphonic voice of another person. The voices identified were enduring, caring, fighting, and what’s not right. The article presents the analysis of each voice and also the movement, the tensions, the harmonies and the dissonances between the different voices.
