Today, we’re reading a selection from Elizabeth Ettorre’s Autoethnography as Feminist Method: Sensitising the Feminist ‘I’, Introduction Autoethnography as Feminist Method. You may find the following questions helpful in formulating your response:
- How is autoethnography different from autobiography? Why are these differences significant?
- How does autoethnography transcend boundaries? Why is this significant to the genre?
- What does Ettorre mean when she argues that the personal is political? How is this reflected in your own identity/experience?
- How can people who identify as men, particularly cis white hetero men, create a feminist autoethnography? How do the oppressive narratives of masculinity and patriarchy shape their experiences?
