House of Mirrors

Performing Autobiograph(icall)y in Language/Education

Series:

Renée Norman

This textual House of Mirrors explores and performs autobiography in/as re-search through the presentation of poetry, personal stories, and theoropoetic ruminations. The themes of writing, mothering, and teaching are reflected by examining the self/selves in the context of textual and living others. This book also incorporates the contributions of women’s autobiographical writings and provides some curricular applications for autobiography in education. Drawing upon feminist and literary thought, House of Mirrors reflexively enacts the possibilities, ethical complications, and disruptions of writing autobiographically about self, others, and autobiography.
