Autobiography by Trev Lynn Broughton

Book Description

The analysis of life-writing as a distinct and specialized project emerged only in the second half of the twentieth century. That it has achieved both academic respectability and critical cachet over the last twenty-five years is the result of a number of trends. Politically 'progressive' tendencies, from the civil rights, workers' educational and second-wave women's movements, to the establishment of sociology, social history and interdisciplinary women's and 'race' studies, have appealed to 'experience', via the production and dissemination of personal testimony, life-narratives, autobiographical manifestos, as the basis for consciousness-raising and as a challenge to dominant accounts of the social world. At the same time, paradoxically, neo-conservative celebrations of individual choice, personal entitlement, consumer power, have reinstated the 'unique' self and its representation at the heart of many late-capitalist cultures. This collection covers all of these schools of thought and brings together both 'mainstream' and 'dissident' theorists, authors and texts. With a new introduction by the editor, an index and a chronological table of contents, this collection will be a unique and unrivalled research resource for both student and scholar.

Books By Author Trev Lynn Broughton

Gender and Fatherhood in the Nineteenth Century by Trev Lynn Broughton Gender and Fatherhood in the Nineteenth Century, Hardback (January 2007)

This lively collection penetrates the stereotype of the Victorian 'paterfamilias' to reveal intimate and involved, authoritarian and austere fathers. Examining how paternal power was embedded in social institutions, it argues that fatherhood invoked more anxiety and debate than hitherto acknowledged.

Men of Letters, Writing Lives by Trev Lynn Broughton Men of Letters, Writing Lives, Paperback (December 1998)

Looks at the developments within Victorian auto/biography, asking what can be learned from the limits of male literary authority. Focuses on 2 case studies: Sir Leslie Stephens and James Anthony Goude's account of the Carlyle marriage.
