Institute of Social Sciences, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, Moscow, Russia.

Abstract [en]

The article focuses on the phenomenon of coloniality of memory and a possibility of getting free from the post-traumatic syndrome, the way they are manifested in the victims of the sexual-political violence in societies marked by various forms of un-freedom, such as apartheid, dictatorship, totalitarianism, ethno-genocide. The author accentuates how the coloniality of memory is reflected in fiction, drama, cinema created in the post-dependence period which not necessarily leads to any repentance. Based on the analysis of the works of writers, playwrights, film directors from different regions, the article demonstrates that the male variants of the interpretation of this problematic seldom go beyond the eternally reproduced circle of violence, remaining in the grip of the androcentric stereotypes and victims' dehumanization. The female interpretation of this problem gives hope for the possibility of eventually overcoming violence which is linked with the specificity of the embodied memory accentuating the non-verbal and non-rational forms and ways of healing and re-existence.
