Abstract

John Freeman’s Remaking Memory: Autoethnography, memoir and the ethics of self makes a significant contribution to autoethnography and memoir. The book includes a lengthy chapter on autoethnographic performance that draws upon literary and performance works pertaining to self-narrating practices. Five case studies by postgraduate students are also included in order to ‘remind the reader [and author] that a sole authorial voice is usually suspect’ (13) and to provide first-hand accounts of some of the ways in which performance and autoethnography have been applied within specific research contexts. Case studies by Rebekka Kill (UK), Nazar Jabour (Iraq/Australia), Kate Rice (Australia), Steph Brocken (UK) and Jamie Coull (Australia) stem directly from the graduate researchers’ theses, offering rich insight into transnational questions of methodology and modes of presentation.
