Narrative Skin Repair: Bearing Witness to Representations of Self-Harm

by Angela Failler

ESC: English Studies In Canada, Mar. 2008, v. 34, no. 1, pp. 11-28

The author examines self-harm representations and sees these representations or mediatized accounts as making self-harm visible and as having reparative potential, that these accounts may make sense of these experiences and allow for a venue where the unthinkable pain may be articulated.
