Life Writing

Permanent URI for this community

The Life Writing research group grew out of an earlier grouping entitled "Constructing Cultural Identities". This group’s research concerns primarily revolve around practical and theoretical notions of autobiography and biography. Research interests include the study of letters and diaries, weblogs and websites, fictional representations of the auto/biography, and the writing and/or editing of auto/biographies. The Life Writing group’s critical commentary covers a vast period of time: for example, early medieval writings, Victorian English records, and modern Australian works are all encompassed.
