Revision : Autoethnographic Reflections on Life and Work, Paperback / softback Book

Revision : Autoethnographic Reflections on Life and Work Paperback / softback

Part of the Writing Lives: Ethnographic Narratives series

Description

Carolyn Ellis is the leading writer in the move toward personal, autobiographical writing as a strategy for academic research.

In addition to her landmark books Final Negotiations and The Ethnographic I, she has authored numerous stories that demonstrate the emotional power and academic value of autoethnography.

This volume collects a dozen of Ellis's stories-about the loss of her husband, brother and mother; of growing up in small town Virginia; about the work of the ethnographer; about emotionally charged life issues such as abortion, caregiving, and love.

Atop these captivating stories, she adds the component of meta-autoethography-a layering of new interpretations, reflections, and vignettes to her older work.

An important new work for qualitative researchers and a student-friendly text for courses.
