Narrative and genre by Mary Chamberlain( Book )

30 editions published between 1997 and 2017 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Any life story, whether a written autobiography or an oral testimony, is shaped not only by the reworkings of experience through memory and re-evaluation, but also by art. Any communication has to use shared conventions not only of language itself, but also the more complex expectations of ""genre,"" the forms expected within a given context and type of communication. This collection of essays by international academics draws on a wide range of disciplines in the social sciences and the humanities to examine how far the expectations and forms of genre shape different kinds of autobiography and influence what messages they can convey. After investigating the problem of genre definition, and tracing the evolution of genre as a concept, contributors explore such issues as: How far can we argue that what people narrate in their autobiographical stories is selected and shaped by the repertoire of genre available to them? To what extent is oral autobiography shaped by its social and cultural context? What is the relationship between autobiographical sources and the ethnographer? Narrative and Genre presents exciting new debates in an emerging field and will encourage international and interdisciplinary discussion. Its authors and contributors are scholars from the fields of anthropology, cultural studies, literary analysis, psychology, psychoanalysis, social history, and sociology."--Provided by publisher
I don't feel old : the experience of later life by Paul Thompson( Book )

Pathways to social class : a qualitative approach to social mobility by Daniel Bertaux( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Up to now, the extensive sociological literature on mobility has been based around the survey method. As a result, we have access to abundant statistical data, but there is little information available to explain how and why people follow particular life paths. To overcome these limitations, the authors have developed an alternative, complementary approach using life stories, case histories of whole families over several generations, or case studies of local communities. Employing the case-study approach does not prevent the identification of structural trends; on the contrary, it allows us to analyse those collective processes through their local effects, restoring the links with the classics of sociological thought
Between generations : family models, myths, and memories( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between Generations is the second volume in the series International Yearbook of Oral History and Life Stories. Like its predecessor, Memory and Totalitarianism, this book concerns powerful memories which continue to shape the present, but in this case in almost all families throughout the world. What is it that parents pass down to their children? How can we understand the mixture of conscious and unconscious models, myths, and material inheritance which are intertwined in both family and individual life stories? The Special Editors of Between Generations, Daniel Bertaux and Paul Thompson, bring together in an innovative perspective contributions from the Americas and Asia as well as from western and eastern Europe. Their approach combines the techniques of life story research with the insights of family therapy in a book of great interest not only to historians and social scientists but also to professionals working with families." "The aim of the International Yearbook is to increase our understanding of the recent past and changing present. It sets out to present and interpret autobiographical testimony, whether in the form of written autobiography, oral history, or life story interviews. Each issue will form a coherent volume focusing on a single theme. Edited by an international group of leading scholars, the Yearbook is genuinely interdisciplinary and intellectually stimulating. It will appeal to students in many areas, including history, sociology, literature, psychology, and anthropology."--Jacket

Annotation
On living through Soviet Russia( Book )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Living Through Soviet Russia analyses, through personal accounts, how Russian society operated at a day-to-day level. It contrasts the integration of different social groups: the descendants of the pre-revolutionary upper classes, the new industrial working class or religious minorities. It examines in turn the implications of family relationships, working mothers, absent fathers and caretaking grandmothers; patterns of eating together and of housing; the secrecy of sexuality; the suppression of religion; and the small freedoms such as growing vegetables at weekends on a dacha plot. Because of its basis in direct testimonies, the book reveals in a highly readable and direct style the meaning for ordinary men and women of living through those seven decades of state socialism."--BOOK JACKET
