Abstract

Based on the analysis of the blog and book by Mariana Eva Perez, Diario de una princesa montonera, this article proposes that memory narratives articulate as a response to current political junctures. Pérez is a daughter of the disappeared during the Argentine dictatorship, and a human rights activist in organizations regarding the terrorism victims’ vindication. The topics, tones and meta-literal allusions that Pérez displays in the blog are sustained in the dialogue that the author maintains with the historical moment of the memory policies enacted by the Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, and Mauricio Macri administrations. Her literary choices unveil how the relatives of the dictatorship victims’ memory discourses are shaped from the perspective of the present.
