Feminism and Autobiography
Texts, Theories, MethodseBook - 2000
Featuring essays by leading feminist scholars from a variety of disciplines, this key text explores the latest developments in autobiographical studies.
The collection is structured around the inter-linked concepts of genre, inter-subjectivity and memory. Whilst exemplifying the very different levels of autobiographical activity going on in feminist studies, the contributions chart a movement from autobiography as genre to autobiography as cultural practice, and from the analysis of autobiographical texts to a preoccupation with autobiography as method.
