Contents:
Introduction: Who are "We" in performative autoethnography? -- Chapter one: The inappropriate/d other -- Chapter two: The unsetlled "I" -- Chapter three: Embodying utopian performatives -- Chapter four: The Willful Embodiment of "We": Utopian reflexivities of hope -- Chapter five: Performing autoethnographic collaboration: group performance of autoethnography -- Chapter six: Willful choices and sympathetic repairs.
Summary: "Challenging the critique of autoethnography as overly focused on the self, Tami Spry calls for a performative autoethnography that both unsettles the "I" and represents the Other with equal commitment. Expanding on her popular book Body, Paper, Stage, Spry uses a variety of examples, literary forms, and theoretical traditions to reframe this research method as transgressive, liberatory, and decolonizing for both self and Other. Her book -draws on her own autoethnographic work with jazz musicians, shamans, and other groups; -outlines a utopian performative methodology to spur hope and transformation; -provides concrete guidance on how to implement this innovative methodological approach"-- Provided by publisher.
