Description

This book introduces literary metissage as a way to research, teach, and live ethically with all our relations in our precarious times. The authors theorize and perform literary metissage through the praxis of life writing, braiding their autobiographical texts, in various (mixed) genres, into seven themes. Life Writing and Literary Metissage as an Ethos for Our Times explores this writing praxis, with its more inclusive and generative notions of knowledge and knowledge practices, as a tool for creating more just societies and schools.
