I stopped by the office of Debbie, my old anthro prof, who was nicely appreciative of my appearance and, as always, suggested some good books for me to look at.
Authors are Julia Watson and Sidonie Smith and the titles that look most interesting
(and are available in our library):
Women, autobiography, theory : a reader.
Madison: U of Wisconsin P, 1998.
De/colonizing the subject : the politics of gender in women’s autobiography.
Minneapolis: U of Minnesota P, 1992.
I really don't know how she does it - she ALWAYS has something to offer and some good words to inspire you by.
I guess I want to be like her when I grow up.
