This chapter introduces feminist literary approaches and specific methodological tools such as using ghosts, hauntings, and the literary imagination in order to recover and redress representations of women, war, and violence from the past. Ghostly representations in literature have become a recurrent phenomenon in 20th- and 21st-century feminist and postcolonial literary writing. The limited way in which women's contributions to the Algerian resistance are represented, if they are represented at all, illustrates that reliance on traditional grand narratives in History is problematic and dangerous. The chapter uses Assia Djebar's La Femme sans Spulture as one example of how fictional writing offers a legitimate record of those erased by grand narratives of History, global politics, and war. Djebar insists on documenting Zoulikhas war resistance to make transparent practices that erase women's lived experience practices that attempt to maintain carefully edited History according to patriarchal and colonial ideologies.
