Workshop: Writing Women’s Lives: Feminist Autoethnography and Oral History
March 29, 2023, 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm, CEU, Quellenstraße 51 (room: A‑516), 1100 Wien
Organised by the Political, Legal, and Moral Philosophy research group (POLEMO) and the South/South Movement, in cooperation with CEU Community Engagement Office and the Department of Gender Studies at Central European University
The interactive workshop will explore the place of autoethnography within the tradition of feminist narrative writing. Narrative „writing the self“ has long been recognized as an important method for feminists. Autoethnography draws upon a social scientific tradition to approach and understand embodied events and emotions that represent wider cultural trends and meanings. With a focus on how narrative emphasizes a plurality of truths and embodied realities, the speakers will explore how narrative methods open up a way of understanding of personal experiences „beyond specific historical contexts or shifting relations of power and inequalities“ (Bell, 2000: 139).
