Special Issue, a/b: Auto/Biography Studies, ‘Lives, Selves, Media and #MeToo’

This special issue of Auto/Biography Studies will explore #MeToo not as an isolated media flare, but as part of a wider social, cultural and historical matrix wherein auto/biographical modes and practices collide and connect with feminist resistance—as well as negotiate and impel its backlash. This issue welcomes broad interpretations of “media” to think beyond the social media context and into print media, ephemera, sound and screen media, with a view to examining the significance of mediation (and media contexts) in testimony, auto/biographical practices, and feminist activism.

Call for papers closes 4 March 2024
