Elements of the Autobiography and Life Narrativeshelps readers think about how their lives—as well as the texts that they write about them—are socially constructed. It presents the autobiography as a means of self-expression, personal and social growth, and development of insight, and shows how writing an autobiography occurs within social and cultural contexts and constraints. A unique chapter (Ch.4) on the media shows how Web sites, web logs, and blogging can be used in developing an autobiography, in understanding autobiography as a genre, and in demonstrating the connection of the autobiography to history and culture. Journaling is a central feature of the book, both as an end in itself and as a means of invention in life narratives. Unique Timeline assignments help readers understand how the personal and social are connected.
