JOHANSSON M., María Teresa  and  LOPEZ G., Loreto. From the repertoire to the archive: testimonial performativity and collective alliances in the work of the social assistants of the Vicaría de la Solidaridad. Universum [online]. 2019, vol.34, n.1, pp.119-145. ISSN 0718-2376.

This article analyzes the repertoire of assistance practices for victims of human rights violations carried out by social workers of the Vicaría de la Solidaridad during the dictatorship. Within this repertoire, which transformed the disciplinary knowledge and had unprecedented ethical implications, we approach testimonial performativity through the listening that the social workers were willing to give to the victims, the actions of resistance through the creation of collective alliances and the creation of a documentary collection. At the same time the custody of the archives reproduces the practice of mediation and supporting practices from the past.
