Autoethnographer as Scavenger: Finding your Way in Narrative Inquiry

Dr. Amy Arellano and Dr. Christina L. Ivey, Boise State University

April 29, 2021

Often described as a “way of life,” autoethnography’s intuitive nature attracts many individuals who have not been exposed to formal training or influential literature. As two autoethnographers who stumbled upon this method by ‘accident,’ a lot of Dr. Arellano’s and Dr. Ivey’s training came from their own research into the world of narrative inquiry.

In this workshop, Dr. Arellano and Dr. Ivey share what they have learned, as well as tips they have picked up for navigating the terrain of autoethnographic scholarship, your book proposal or manuscript, and preparing for the production process.
