Doing Autoethnography 2020: Call for Participation

Since the inaugural conference in 2011, participants have gathered to present their work, engage in vibrant discussion, and build relationships at Doing Autoethnography conferences. In 2020, the tradition continues.

Submissions might:

  • engage a variety of topics (e.g., gender, sexuality, race, health, education) autoethnographically or through related methods of narrative and/or performative writing,
  • address autoethnography on theoretical or methodological levels,
  • champion aspects of autoethnography or autoethnography in general, and/or
  • interrogate practices in autoethnographic methods.

Creative and innovative approaches are encouraged. All submissions should take the form of extended abstracts (not to exceed 750 words). Email your abstract to to be considered for presentation at Doing Autoethnography 2020. The deadline for submission is May 31, 2019.
