Queer and quare autoethnography
As researchers committed to personal narrative and social justice, we frequently use our experiences to identify abuses of power and instances of harm, offer accounts of marginal and silenced stories, and acknowledge and decenter our own positions of cultural privilege. To assist us with these commitments, we often rely on the aims and practices of queer theory, quare theory, and autoethnographycritical theoretical and methodological orientations that, when taken together, offer insights for using personal experience to describe abuses of power and tools for crafting evocative and accessible accounts of cultural life.
