In this definitive reference volume, almost fifty leading thinkers and practitioners of autoethnographic research-from four continents and a dozen disciplines-comprehensively cover its vision, opportunities and challenges. Chapters address the theory, history, and ethics of autoethnographic practice, representational and writing issues, the personal and relational concerns of the autoethnographer, and the link between researcher and social justice. A set of 13 exemplars show the use of these principles in action. Autoethnography is one of the most popularly practiced forms of qualitative research over the past 20 years, and this volume captures all its essential elements for graduate students and practicing researchers.

--Pranee Liamputtong, La Trobe University

"This evocative volume reinforces the importance of storytelling and personal narrative in the social sciences. It brings new insights to the applications of autoethnography in the twenty-first century and provides a valuable resource for practitioners of self-reflexive approaches."
--Deborah Reed-Danahay, University at Buffalo, SUNY

"This is an excellent collection - my much-used hard cover copy is showing signs of wear (but no tear!) from doctoral student use and chapters in the book underpinned a number of revisions I recommended in a recent thesis examination. Highly recommended!"
