Reading autobiography : a guide for interpreting life narratives by Sidonie Smith( )

49 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 2,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reading Autobiography is an essential guide for students and scholars reading and interpreting autobiographical texts and methods across the humanities, social sciences, and visual and performing arts. Thoroughly updated, the second edition is the most complete assessment of life narrative in its myriad forms. It lays out a sophisticated, theoretical approach to life writing and the components of autobiographical acts, including memory, experience, identity, embodiment, space, and agency. Sidonie Smith and Julia Watson explore these components, review the history of life writing and the foundations of autobiographical subjectivity, and provide a tool kit for working with this genre. Their survey of innovative forms of life writing, such as autographics and installation self-portraiture, charts recent shifts in autobiographical practice. Especially useful for courses are the appendixes: a glossary covering dozens of distinct genres of life writing, proposals for group and classroom projects, and an extensive bibliography. --Book Jacket
De/colonizing the subject : the politics of gender in women's autobiography by Sidonie Smith( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging the prevailing universalism that reduces whole cultures to contained stereotypes and persons to cultural representations, "De/Colonizing the Subject" frames the newest frontier of critical investigation -- colonial and postcolonial autobiography of the embodies subject. This compelling survey explores the constitution of the "colonial subject" in history, discourse, and desire, and examines how women's autobiographical practices have arisen within and confronted the contexts of colonization and oppression. Ultimately, new modes of embodied subjectivity are revealed that revalue women's personal narratives as important interventions into politics and history. -- From publisher's description
Women, autobiography, theory : a reader( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women, Autobiography, Theory is the first comprehensive guide to the burgeoning field of women’s autobiography, drawing into one volume the most significant theoretical discussions on women’s life writing of the last two decades. The authoritative introduction by Sidonie Smith and Julia Watson surveys writing about women’s lives from the women’s movement of the late 1960s to the present. It also relates theoretical positions in women’s autobiography studies to postmodern, poststructuralist, postcolonial, and feminist analyses. The essays from thirty-nine prominent critics and writers include many considered classics in this field. They explore narratives across the centuries and from around the globe, including testimonios, diaries, memoirs, letters, trauma accounts, prison narratives, coming-out stories, coming-of-age stories, and spiritual autobiographies. A list of more than two hundred women’s autobiographies and a comprehensive bibliography of critical scholarship in women’s autobiography provide invaluable information for scholars, teachers, and readers
Interfaces : women, autobiography, image, performance( Book )

21 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern and contemporary women's artistic production of autobiography frequently occurs at the interfaces of image and text. The many permutations of words and images in all their modes of production--photograph, pose, invocation, written narrative, sculpture, dance, diatribe--create countless possibilities of expression, and this volume charts some of the ways in which women artists are seizing these possibilities. Editors Sidonie Smith and Julia Watson have been at the vanguard of the study of women's self-representation, and here have collected leading critics' and scholars' thoughts on artistic fusions of the visual and autobiographical. Marianne Hirsch, Linda Hutcheon, Linda Kauffman, Nellie McKay, Marjorie Perloff, Lee Quinby, and the other contributors offer new insights into the work of such artists as Laurie Anderson, Judy Chicago, Frida Kahlo, Orlan, and Cindy Sherman. From a painter's diary to a performance artist's ritualized enactments of kitchen domesticity, the many narratives of the self arising from these artists' negotiations of the visual and textual prove to be goldmines for analysis. Art historians, artists, critics, literary scholars in women's studies, and anyone interested in the forms and implications of depicting the self will enjoy this richly illustrated collection
