CERLAC Fellow Professor Alison Crosby co-authors book on Mayan women’s struggle for justice

In a new book that explores a group of Mayan women’s collective struggle for justice, York University Professor Alison Crosby and Boston College Professor M. Brinton Lykes examine how these women’s protagonisms have been formed after suffering genocidal violence in Guatemala during the early 1980s.

The book Beyond Repair?: Mayan Women’s Protagonism in the Aftermath of Genocidal Harm (Rutgers University Press) draws on eight years of feminist participatory action research (PAR) and examines how Mayan women’s protagonism has been shaped through dialogic interactions with intermediaries, including Mayan, ladina, mestiza and transnational activists, feminists, lawyers, psychologists, interpreters and the authors as researchers.
