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.

Industry Reviews

"Here is an unusually incisive and well-written anthology, covering many of the complexities inherent in women's memories. For me, the analysis of feminists' accounts of their mothers, their reality versus fiction, their evidence of resentment and distortion were especially compelling, original and insightful. I highly recommend this collection." -Carolyn Heilbrun, Columbia University
