Mediating Memory : Tracing the Limits of Memoir, Hardback Book


The argument has been made that memoir reflects and augments the narcissistic tendencies of our neo-liberal age.

Mediating Memory: Tracing the Limits of Memoir challenges and dismantles that assumption.

Focusing on the history, theory and practice of memoir writing, editors Bunty Avieson, Fiona Giles and Sue Joseph provide a thorough and cutting-edge examination of memoir through the lenses of ethics, practice and innovation.

By investigating memoir across cultural boundaries, in its various guises, and tracing its limits, the editors convincingly demonstrate the plurality of ways in which memoir is helping us make sense of who we are, who we were and the influences that shape us along the way.
