The current scenario, marked by the emergence of a new subjectivity and by the intersection between different arts, forces us to reinstate the question of the generic status of testimony. This is an unresolved discussion that caused a critical uproar until the 1990s and then remained in the background. The only point of consensus was the verification of how difficult it was to define it. In this book, which brings together the research of various academics, the need to update the definition of testimony is raised to address various aspects, including its relationship with literature and other forms of representation in a world that is increasingly multi, inter and transmedia.
