Join us in Bristol for the 2019 British International Conference of Autoethnography which will take place in Bristol on July the 22nd and 23rd
The 2019 British Autoethnography conference provides an inter-disciplinary space to explore different ways we come to know, understand and communicate. We hope novice and neophyte researchers will be supported to develop their practice alongside more experienced practitioners and we hope each of us is able to inspire, challenge, nurture each other while witnessing and responding to our presentations and performances.
The conference is not run within an academic setting as a reminder that research, learning and understanding are human pursuits and likely to be of interest to anyone. We also hope this reminds us all to think about the accessibility of our work, the language we use, and how we can engage a wider audience and the non-academic with our work.
We hope the space created between and around us provides opportunities to share, celebrate, develop and explore how our own lives, experiences, stories and art shape and challenge the world we live in, our communities and each other.
Once again we welcome performance, installations, dance, music, poetry, films and multimedia presentations as well as more traditional academic papers.
Conference themes: Activism, Social justice, & Collaboration
