Overview

From the 1980s onwards, there has been what has frequently been described as an auto/biographical turn in the social sciences and also in the arts and humanities. Changes in conceptions of self, society and identity, post-modern, post-structural and post-colonial influences and sensibilities to name but a few have all played their part in focusing attention on to, and valorising the perceptions and experiences of the individual. Now, at a time of exciting development for the subject, this new four-volume set seeks to capture the important articles that have come out of the field over the past decades.

Framed by a newly-written introductory chapter, the collection includes work that spans disciplinary boundaries, bringing together a comprehensive resource taht will prove invaluable to scholars in the field.
