  • Putting Things Together: To Interviewing as Creative Practice
    • Abstract: Interviews are omnipresent in our globalized contemporary society. As media objects, they come to us through television, radio, and Twitter, and in magazines and newspapers. As a method, interviewing dominates police work, recruitment, therapy, social research, journalism, and oral history. So, too, it often forms the groundwork for biography. Personal interviews are a crucial site where individuals, whether politicians, writers, or research subjects, can be mined for information or legitimate their status, but evaluating the nature of the textual or audiovisual objects produced often opens up practical questions. Who, for example, had editorial control' What was the nature of the interview subject's involvement' ... Read More

  • The Interview as Criticism: David Sylvester's Artist Interviews
    • Abstract: The artist interview in Western art has its roots in the dialogue tradition exemplified by Francisco de Hollanda's Da pintura antigua (1548) and Lodovico Dolce's Dialogo della Pittura (1557), both of which are important sources for the study of Renaissance art. As the poet Richard Berengarten has noted, however, the interview itself "belongs to modernity," and has quickly risen in popularity since the early twentieth century (Berengarten and Dillon). In the case of the visual arts, the proliferation of the art press, the rise of the exhibition catalog as a stand-alone publication, and the event programs that accompany many exhibitions have made interviews a significant part of what Robert Morris called the ...

  • Confessions of a Ventriloquist
    • Abstract: To introduce Sylvère Lotringer, the author and subject of this self-interview, is to introduce a multitude of characters and roles. A student of Roland Barthes and Lucien Goldmann, Lotringer had good contacts with the French intellectuals who would shape post-structuralism and has been largely responsible for promoting what has become known as French theory. As François Cusset has argued, this phenomenon is best understood as the reception and transformation of mid-twentieth-century continental philosophy by the American art world and by departments of literary and cultural studies. When Lotringer was appointed professor in semiology at Columbia University in New York in 1972, he introduced French theory into the ... Read More

  • Criticism Live: The History and Practice of the Critical Interview
    • Abstract: Stephen Greenblatt opens his 1988 book stamping the New Historicism, Shakespearean Negotiations, with the declaration: "I began with the desire to speak with the dead" (1). In investigating the history of contemporary American criticism, I instead began with the desire to speak with the living, and thus far I have conducted more than sixty interviews with critics, theorists, philosophers, and editors about it.Interviews have an iffy status in criticism. While some interviews with figures like Michel Foucault or Jacques Derrida have attained canonical standing, they usually fall into a generic no-man's land, accessible but not quite real criticism or scholarship. They flirt with the world of popular culture, with ... Read More

  • Emergent Conversations: Bronwyn Davies on the Transformation of Interview
           Practices in the Social Sciences
    • Abstract: Bronwyn Davies is an Australian pedagogue with an extremely broad horizon. Best known as a specialist of early childhood education (she received an honorary doctorate at the University of Uppsala in Sweden for her work in this domain), she has also worked on poststructuralist and gender theory and has, in the last decades, gained renown for her innovative methodological practices, especially her work on "collective biography." Having been a professor of education at James Cook University and at the University of Western Sydney, she has been prolific as an independent scholar since 2009.A constant throughout Davies's career is interviewing as a methodology, from her early ethnographic study in 1982, Life in the ...

  • "Three words you must never say": Hermione Lee on Interviewing
    • Abstract: Elegant and unobtrusive, Hermione Lee is, nevertheless, a British institution. She is the renowned biographer of Virginia Woolf, Edith Wharton, Willa Cather, and, more recently, Penelope Fitzgerald. As a critic she has written widely on women writers, modern fiction, life writing, and American literature. Lee's academic career has spanned half a century: she has taught at the College of William and Mary, the University of Liverpool, and, from 1977 to 1998, the University of York. In 1998 she was appointed Goldsmiths' Professor of English Literature at Oxford University and the first female professorial fellow at New College, Oxford.

  • The Interviewer Speaks Back: Turning the Tables of the Literary Interview
           in Contemporary French Novels
    • Abstract: In journalistic interviews, interviewers are usually in control, regulating the interaction by asking questions. Yet it is often interviewees who have the upper hand, talking about themselves to interviewers who have to play second fiddle. This dynamic also regularly applies to the literary interview, where authors speak about their last book, works, ideas, and lives. Literary interviews are encounters between two writers of different genres: the author, who is culturally perceived as a writer with more privilege, and a journalist, who is sometimes perceived as a "wannabe" author. In terms of the dynamics of an interview, we have authors who have the last word while writing their works, and journalists, who are the ... Read More

  • "To Unreel a Whole Story": Julia Kerninon on Writers' Interviews
    • Abstract: Julia Kerninon is a writer, born in Nantes, France, in 1987. Her first novel, Buvard (2014), is structured as a long author interview. Discussed by Galia Yanoshevsky in this issue, the novel won the Prix Françoise Sagan and propelled Julia to fame in the French literary sphere. She has followed up the novel with Le Dernier Amour d'Attila Kiss (2016), winner of the Prix de la Closerie des Lilas, and Une Activité respectable (2017), and this summer her new novel Ma dévotion will be published.

  • "Making Friends": The Geopolitics of the Interview on the BBC'S Eastern

    • Abstract: During the Second World War, Indian novelist Mulk Raj Anand developed and broadcast a series of interviews for the British Broadcasting Corporation's Indian Section titled Meet My Friend (1942). According to Anand, the goal of the series was "to present to India some of my English friends, so that Englishmen … appear as human beings" ("Meet My Friend—No. 1" 1). He interviewed nine people for the series and asked these "friends" to describe their work, thoughts on the war, and daily life. In 1949, after the independence of India and Pakistan, the writer Attia Hosain gave a talk on the Eastern Service, "Making Friends," in which she related the story of an older English woman she called "Gran" who befriended her and ...

  • Ways of Seeing/Ways of Talking: Conversation and Collage in the Films of
           Mike Dibb
    • Abstract: Mike Dibb is a British documentary filmmaker best known for Ways of Seeing, a legendary television series about art and visual culture that he made with author John Berger for the BBC in 1972.1 The popularity of the series is continued in the book Ways of Seeing that was reissued by Penguin Modern Classics in 2008 and remains a favorite of students of visual culture and cultural studies. After this series, Dibb went on to make several visual essays. Seeing through Drawing (1978) is a two-hour exploration of drawing as something universal rather than just the labor of artists (a theme that reappears in his current project, The Dungeon Art of Donny Johnson, about a remarkable US prisoner and painter).

The internet has greatly contributed to their continued life cycle on platforms like Open Culture and YouTube. In 2004, Melville House Books, a small Brooklyn press founded by sculptor Valerie Merians and writer Dennis Johnson, launched a book series titled the Last Interview with subjects ranging from Martin Luther King to Hannah Arendt, Lou Reed, David Foster Wallace, and Jacques Derrida, with whom the series started (Masschelein et al., "The Literary Interview" 32; Maunsell 42).1 The popularity and ...

  • Theoretical Perspectives on Historians' Autobiographies: From

    • Abstract: The predominance of historians among the many scholars engaged in the autobiographical turn and seeking to use some aspects of their lives or personal experiences to interrogate or illustrate their field of study has been widely noted. Jeremy Popkin has explored the different approaches to autobiographical writing among historians in France, Britain, the United States, and Australia. Robin Viner, too, points to some of the national differences in approach, while stressing the link between this current vogue for historians' autobiography and a growing interest in contemporary history. Indeed, so great is this sense of the importance of linking personal experience with the story being told that those who were born ... Read More

This is a book that expands the idea of non-fiction media beyond designations usually found in film studies. It explores topics relevant to contemporary issues, such as the representation of truth and reality, the changing forms of legal evidence and indexicality, and ideas about subjectivity and agency informed by postcolonial theory: topics relevant to contemporary visual art, new media studies, literature, and ethnographic practices in the social sciences. In their introduction, the editors explain that Documentary Across ... Read More

    • Abstract: Women producing, decorating, mending, gifting, and selling cloth is an ancient trope indeed. From the Greek muses to the girls and women laboring in exploitative clothing factories today, Mary Jo Bona links elements of this enduring image to the sewing women of four culturally and historically distinct American novels: Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter (1850), Alice Walker's The Color Purple (1982), Sandra Cisneros's Caramelo (2002), and Adria Bernardi's Openwork: A Novel (2007). Her brief but theoretically rich introduction explores issues of ethnicity, mobility and migration, iconographies of textile traditions, and feminism. Articulations between ethnic studies and American fiction are explored through ... Read More

  • Beyond the Archive: Memory, Narrative, and the Autobiographical
           Process—Explorations in Narrative Psychology by Jens Brockmeier (review)
           
    • Abstract: Norwegian writer Karl-Ove Knausgård defines memory in the third part of his six-part book series, titled My Struggle, as follows: "Memory is not a reliable quantity in life. And it isn't because of the simple reason that memory doesn't prioritize the truth. It is never the demand for truth that determines whether memory recalls an action accurately or not" (11). Knausgård's books can be defined as autofiction, although they do offer many possible interpretations in the field of autobiographical fiction writing. What is interesting here is that in his books, Knausgård explores the ways our memory works: he has a strict, almost ascetic idea of writing about everything exactly like it happened, he aims at writing his ...

  • Reading Lessons in Seeing: Mirrors, Masks, and Mazes in the
           Autobiographical Graphic Novel by Michael A. Chaney (review)
    • Abstract: Many of us who study and teach life writing have found the rise of the memoir in comics form an exciting phenomenon to observe. Across literary and cultural studies, influential texts such as Maus, Fun Home, and Persepolis have prompted a renewed interest in accounting for the unique power of autobiographical storytelling and presented scholars with the challenge of reckoning with a new textual form. Michael A. Chaney's Reading Lessons in Seeing sits at the intersection of a media-specific theory of comics and the study of autobiography, arguing that reading autobiographical comics requires more—from critics, teachers, students, and readers—than a glancing familiarity with the complexities of life writing or the ...

Across the nine chapters of their book, Douglas and Poletti not only recover the work of writers who, due to their age, have remained largely invisible to life writing studies but also reconsider a range of familiar ...

Arguing for an expansion of the idea of kinship, as connections made rather than those one is born into, and using the transnational as a device for illuminating prejudices of identity and culture, the editors have brought together ten chapters investigating expressions of selfhood in relation to digital technology use and digital spheres. Focusing particularly upon "quick media"—"cheap, easily accessible, and omnipresent tools of communication" (4) that enable impromptu connection—these essays lean into the confusions ... Read More

Part I focuses on the "role of the forgotten" or "scenes of forgetting" in contemporary representations of life writing, ranging from conventional autobiography to social media. Part II is more culturally oriented, covering fiction as well as autobiography. Gudmundsdottir explores the social and political consequences of forgetting and draws her examples from a variety of histories in the West. The particular texts under scrutiny in the volume are intriguingly idiosyncratic. ... Read More

The primary objective of the book is to strengthen the relationship between history and biography by utilizing biography as a method of historical analysis. The book is divided into four thematic sections: genre, gender, context, and relations. Despite the focus of the book being on case studies from the Nordic region, there is nothing explicitly Nordic in the theoretical and methodological scope presented in this collection.

M. Barrie, Rudyard Kipling, May Sinclair, Virginia Woolf, and Wilfred Owen). Johnson credits all these figures with using their writing as a way of bravely working through a pattern of "avoidant" attachment developed self-protectively against losses in childhood and re-suffered in war losses (10). He calls the writers "wounded healers" of both themselves and a collectively war-traumatized society (7).Johnson helpfully shows how widespread the appeal of psychic research was in Victorian and Edwardian ...

Genres of narrative include diaries like those of Zofia Nałkowska, a Polish witness of the Holocaust, and Molly Lamb Bobak, an artist who joined the Canadian Women's Army Corps; letters such as those exchanged by Viktoria and Martha Probst, two German sisters separated by war; and memoirs like the ones written by Marguerite Payne, who joined the British women's forces in the Caribbean.

In Jessalynn Keller's book, Girls' Feminist Blogging in a Postfeminist Age, girls' blogging is understood for its political significance in the ways it carries on the legacy of feminism in punk, girls' "bedroom" cultures (McRobbie and Garber 186), and other creative, self-representative cultural activities. What comes through very clearly is a critique of the repeated devaluation of ... Read More

Rabbis and other Jewish scholars have squeezed every letter and cantillation mark for interpretive clues and signposts. Christian commentators, working from Greek and Latin translations before the Renaissance and from Hebrew and modern languages ever since, as well as Muslims, who know the story from its retelling in the Qu'rān, have also contributed to this discussion, now in its third millennium. Lastly, modern scholars of literature and the ancient Near East have not been idle; books, commentaries, and articles on the Joseph story would fill many a shelf. This is an impressive body ...

Why might we select memoirs as a fruitful springboard for moral theorizing' A colony of possibilities bursts forth. By examining memoirs, we can learn about moral values within the context of actual human experiences, understand the motivations and socializing influences that drew prominent historical figures to embody particular normative visions, analyze situations in which such figures exercised and exerted virtues they extolled elsewhere in their literary work, dissect the philosophical and ...

Park observes how Korean identity negotiates language, culture, and notions of belonging through modes of life writing by closely reading works by the Korean immigrants who arrived in Hawai'i during the early 1900s and moving on to discuss writing by ongoing generations and waves of settlers. Working with the understanding that Korean American literature does not consider diasporic Koreans in Hawai'i, Park asserts that scholars have elided Hawai'i altogether as a ... Read More

Since then, the abandonment of faith in "grand narratives" of history and the broad "biographic turn" in the social sciences and humanities has transformed the atmosphere. Nevertheless, biography remains, Possing contends, an undertheorized genre that has not attracted the attention bestowed on autobiography or the academic status of history. She offers Understanding Biographies, a revised version of ... Read More

Yet such an ethnographic project is reformulated here by coauthors Andrea L. Smith and Anna Eisenstein as an investigation of contemporary American modes of "collective memory," a Durkheimian concept developed by Maurice Halbwachs most notably in his posthumously published La mémoire collective (1950). But Rebuilding Shattered Worlds emerges not by studying public monuments and ritual commemorations, as did the Durkheimians, but by aggregating the historical ... Read More

While a major focus of their scholarship has been women's autobiography, this selection of their work, spanning 1991 through 2016, amply demonstrates that they see "the autobiographical"—in many incarnations, in various media, in any part of the world—as their objects of study.
