Abstract:

Breaking histories of silence and invisibility, Wall tappings presents an international collection of women's writings, from prisons around the world and across centuries. "These are the marginal texts in a tradition of marginal texts," writes Judith A. Scheffler in introducing her groundbreaking anthology of writing by women prisoners. Unique in its geographic and historical ranges, this rich collection gives a voice to women whose stories have been long neglected. Speaking from settings as diverse as a Roman prison cell in 203 AD, the labor camps of Siberia in the 1930s, and a Philippines prison in the 1980s, these writers explore the ways in which actual incarceration rests in the shadow of imprisonment within larger society.
