This methods book guides you through the process of conducting and producing an autoethnographic study through the understanding of self, other, and culture. It offers a series of hands-on steps for data collection, analysis, and interpretation with self-reflective writing exercises that will enable you to produce an autoethnographic work. Chang offers a variety of techniques for gathering data on the self--from diaries to culture grams to interviews--and shows how to transform this information into a study that is narratively sound, introspective, and sensitive to cultural diversity and identity. --From publisher's description.
