Rhetorical Autoethnography

This week we’re reading Brett Lunceford’s (2015) article, “Rhetorical Autoethnography” from the Journal of Contemporary Rhetoric. As you formulate your response, you may find answering one of the following questions helpful: 

  • Lunceford cites Wayne Booth and the differences between the author and implied author (p. 4). What do you think of this distinction? How might autoethnography problematize this distinction? 
  • How can autoethnography help us more fully understand an “artifact under consideration” (p. 10)? 
  • Lunceford provides four guidelines (p. 17). Which of these guidelines do you find the most challenging to your composing process?
