Revision - Autoethnographic Reflections on Life and Work

Author(s): Carolyn Ellis


Carolyn Ellis is a prominent writer in the move toward personal, reflexive writing as an approach to academic research. In addition to her landmark books Final Negotiations and The Ethnographic I, she has authored numerous stories that demonstrate the emotional power and academic value of autoethnography.

Now issued as a Routledge Education Classic Edition, Revision: Autoethnographic Reflections on Life and Work collects a dozen of Ellis's stories--about the loss of her husband, brother and mother; of growing up in small town Virginia; about the ethical work of the ethnographer; and about emotionally charged life issues such as abortion, caregiving, and love. Atop these captivating stories, she adds the component of meta-autoethography--a layering of new interpretations, reflections, and vignettes to her older work.

A new preface text by the author reflects on the subsequent developments in the author's life and her vision for autoethnography since the book's original publication. Demonstrating Carolyn's extensive contribution to autoethnographic scholarship, this new edition offers compelling ideas and stories for qualitative researchers and a student-friendly text for courses.
