This volume is a call for integrity in autoethnographic research. Stephen Andrew weaves together philosophy, critical theory, and extended self-reflections to demonstrate how and why qualitative researchers should assess the ethical quality of their work. He also offers practical tools designed to limit the likelihood of self-indulgence and solipsism in first-person writing. Equally instructive and exemplary, his work: Is written in a relatable style that draws readers in and encourages them to think critically about the implications and effects of their writing. Examines the history of qualitative and autoethnographic research. Provides implementable strategies for textualizing lived experiences and relationships with others.
