Autoethnography, like all research genres, is a contested term with diverse connotations. Muncey offers clarity of understanding of the term, its evolution as a facet of anthropological research, and some of the key influences in postmodernist thought that have helped to widen its application in psychological and sociological disciplines.David McCormackBritish Journal of Guidance and Counselling
This is a unique text. Using autobiographies as an approach to social research is clearly presented. The book is short and therefore forms an excellent addition to the textbook for my ethnography and cultural analysis course.
using to illustrate power of personal stories
An inspirational book that highlights the topic of diversity among healthcare professionals. It is an advanced book for undergraduate courses, but can be used if the students (not English native speakers) are supervised in their reading. This book can be recommended as literature for nursing philosophy, diversity management and professional development.
Don't like the style particularly
useful information although a little too in depth for the level of learner I teach.
We have students using a range of reserach methodologies and this is certainly a text that I will recommend for those wishing to use autoethnographies within their individual dissertations
Autoethnography is not something that clinical psychologists have traditionally embraced. I have decided to adopt this book as supplementary reading to try and encourage our trainee clinical psychologists to consider another approach to undertaking research at a doctoral level. This book is a good introduction and I suspect that my students will connect with the honesty and openness with which it is written.
This book offers valuable guidance to students who may choose to consider influences on self that impact on 'therapeutic use of self' in health care or professional 'reflective practices'. This has been purchased for our library research section.
This is a clear and straightforward book which I will recommend to my students who decide to take an auto/biographical approach to their research project which culminates in a 50 - 70,000 word dissertation. Students on the EdD vary in the research approach they take but auto/biography is popular because of my own predilections and the fact that they hear a lot (during the taught component of their course) about auto/ethnography and life history and so on. I have previously directed them to Carolyn Ellis' work - which some like and some hate.
This is a useful book, a very appealing, clear and accessible guide.
An interesting text that adds to material on reflexivity and ethnography. Nicely pitched between the two with good practical suggestions.
This is a specialist book but one that I will recommend for our library and to any students writing an autoethnographic dissertation which a small number of our students choose to do. I also see its value for students writing critically and analytically about their own practice in a variety of contexts.
