This culturally and academically diverse collection combines perspectives on contemporary autoethnographic thinking from scholars working within a variety of disciplines, contexts, and formats. The first section provides an introduction and demonstration of the different types and uses of autoethnography, the second explores the potential issues and questions associated with its practice, and the third offers perspectives on evaluation and assessment. Concluding with a reflective discussion between the editors, this is the premier resource for researchers and students interested in autoethnography, life writing, and qualitative research.

This marvellous, interdisciplinary book characterizes variations and themes within contemporary autoethnographic research and practice. We grasp different ways to conceive of autoethnography; its use across disciplines; why its design includes key ethical issues; what working with students involves and criteria for evaluating autoethnography. It's a compendium of stunning, international autoethnographic work.
Elizabeth Ettorre, Professor Emerita (Sociology) University of Liverpool
