Autobiography and life writing have been receiving increasing scholarly attention due to the recent booming production of various forms of personal narratives, and the ongoing changes in the art of self-representation. The boom in personal narratives reflects changes in the articulation of self-identity, the role of memory (individual, cultural and collective), the influence of the media and new technologies. These changes challenge us to re- examine some constitutive features of the genre and to redefine the boundaries of the genre of autobiography, as well as to re-contextualize it in relation to various cultural and discursive practices underlying self- narratives. The international interdisciplinary conference 'Autobiography in Context' hosted by the English Department of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Rijeka, took place in Rijeka on 21st and 22nd November 2014 and gathered around thirty scholars coming from all across Europe (Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Hungary, Rumunia, Austria, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Croatia). The aim of the conference was to re-examine the concept of autobiography and re-contextualize its historical and cultural significance. The conference abstracts collected in this book encompass a wide range of approaches to autobiography and life writing, in light of the development of the genre and the various sub- genres, challenging traditional theoretical and historical contexts, as well as offering new ones. The papers presented at the conference, therefore, dealt with autobiography in context, across cultures, social groups and across different historical periods. In view of the above mentioned the topics of the abstracts collected in this book include but are not limited to the following: autobiography and the boundaries of the genre ; autobiography and the canon ; autobiography and life writing, testimonials, confession, diaries, journals, letters, memoirs, fictitious autobiographies, autobiographical essays ; advancements and limits of autobiography ; the role of the author, authority, authorship ; self- representational writing, self invention, fiction and truth, ethics, the art of lying ; autobiography and memory: autobiographical memory, collective memory and cultural memory ; autobiography and identity formation (gendered, hybrid, transnational, etc.) ; personal narratives and cosmopolitanism ; autobiography, body, self-identity and society ; autobiography and gender ; women’s literature ; autobiography and history-making ; autobiography, trauma, cultural memory ; autobiography across cultures: Irish, Australian, Scottish, etc. (other national cultures) ; autobiography and diasporic memories ; ethnic literature (Irish, Ethnic- American, etc.) ; postcolonial autobiography ; Indigenous autobiography ; autobiography and blog, online writing of the Self ; autobiography in Theatre, Dance and Film ; autobiography and Popular Culture ; cultural studies approach to autobiography. The conference provided a stimulating platform for further rethinking of the genre of autobiography and life writing, its theoretical, philosophical, practical, and other implications within a broader literary and cultural context.
