Course Title & Description: Autoethnography -  This capstone course will provide students with an in-depth understanding of the theory, method, and ethics of autoethnography. As the name implies, autoethnography explores cultural phenomena through the lens of lived experience, connecting biography with history, psyche with society, self with other. The class will learn about and experiment with various autoethnographic forms (e.g., evocative, analytical, performance, multi-voiced, layered accounts), and each student will undertake a semester-long autoethnographic project, which they will perform at the end of the semester and revise for potential submission to a journal. Ultimately, students will come to appreciate the power of autoethnography and personal narrative to shine light on terrains of human experience that are unreachable via traditional research methods. They will also develop a relational ethics of care towards the subjects of their inquiry.
