Submit your research for a special issue on Broken Dialogues and win the 2015 a/b Essay Prize.
This special issue of a/b invites essays that focus on the dialogical nature of life writing in diverse forms and media. In particular, we are interested in all kinds of barriers, failures, and impasses of dialogue in life writing and auto/biography studies. We seek submissions that investigate what dialogical shifts and transformations are possible (or impossible) in auto/biographical communication across all kinds of divides: historical, geographic, political, social, cultural, institutional, generational, aesthetic, methodological, and others.
Inquiries and essays should be emailed to guest editors Eva C. Karpinski and Leena Kurvet-Käosaar. Essays are due by November 1, 2014.
