              Autobiography of a Disease
               

              Autobiography of a Disease (Hardback)

              By Anderson, Patrick

              Autobiography of a Disease documents, in experimental form, the experience of extended life-threatening illness in contemporary US hospitals and clinics. The narrative is based primarily on the author's sudden and catastrophic collapse into a coma and long hospitalization thirtee...n years ago; but it has also been crafted from twelve years of research on the history of microbiology, literary representations of illness and medical treatment, cultural analysis of MRSA in the popular press, and extended auto-ethnographic work on medicalization. An experiment in form, the book blends the genres of storytelling, historiography, ethnography, and memoir. Unlike most medical memoirs, told from the perspective of the human patient, Autobiography of a Disease is told from the perspective of a bacterial cluster. This orientation is intended to represent the distribution of perspectives on illness, disability, and pain across subjective centers - from patient to monitoring machine, from body to cell, from caregiver to cared-for - and thus makes sense of illness only in a social context.

              White Folks: Race and Identity in Rural America
               

              White Folks: Race and Identity in Rural America (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Lensmire, Timothy J.

              What does it mean to be white and American? White Folks moves beyond the dominant critical methodologies of examining 'whiteness', to conceptualize white people in a way that is unafraid to confront, head on, the violence at the core of white racial selves, but that also that ill...uminates conflicts and complexities there. The book focuses on the the authors' own experience of growing up in a small, rural community in northern Wisconsin, and the stories of people from that community, drawn from a series of in-depth interviews.

              At Home with Grief: Continued Bonds with the Deceased

              At Home with Grief: Continued Bonds with the Deceased (Hardback)

              When Blake Paxton was 18, his mother Ann died at home from a pulmonary embolism. At Home with Grief describes the continuing bonds we have with our loved ones after death, exploring experiences with prolonged grief, personal and communal memory, and family communication. After An...n's death, Blake set out on a personal journey to keep his mother's memory by interviewing relatives and the doctors involved in his mother's care. Through this intensely personal story, Blake reflects on researcher reflexivity, ethics in the field, and methodological considerations for adapting transcript data into narratives. It is not only an autoethnographic story, but a story about doing autoethnography and all the transformative possibilities these types of projects can offer, including contributing to continuous bonds. The book concludes by introducing several possibilities for scholarship that connects both communication theory and the continuing bonds paradigm.

              This volume is a call for integrity in autoethnographic research.

Equally instructive and exemplary, his work: Is written in a relatable style that draws readers in and encourages them to think critically about the implications and effects of their writing.

              YoungGiftedandFat: An Autoethnography of Size, Sexuality, and Privilege (Hardback)

              Young, Gifted and Fat is an autoethnography of 'performing thin' - on the stage and in life. Sharrell Luckett's story of weight loss and gain and playing the (beautiful, desirable, thin) leading lady showcases an innovative and interdisciplinary approach to issues of weight and s...elf-esteem, performance, race and gender. Sharrell structures her project with letters, interviews, testimony, journal entries, dialogues, monologues, and deep theorizing through and about the abundance of flesh. She explores the politics of Black culture, and particularly the intersections of her lived and embodied experiences. Her body and body transformation becomes a critical praxis to evidence fat as a feminist issue, fat as a Black-girl-woman issue, fat as an ideological construct that is as much on the brain as it is on the body. She is theorizing fat as physical, psychological, and political struggle-taking up head-space as much as physical space.
