Getting Personal: Feminist Occasions and Other Autobiographical Acts

Miller, Nancy K.

 This collection of some of the author’s essays on feminism and writing (especially autobiography) offers reasons for being personal in nonfiction writing and actually practices it in these essays. She situates her essays in the personal context in which they were written, including her motives. This is what I have argued that consciousness researchers, especially parapsycho-logists, should do in their writings—whether experimental, theoretical, methodological, or historical. All scientists should do it. If we can’t get the observer out of the equation, let’s situate the observer within it. To learn how and why, read this book. The method of writing about writing autobiography while writing autobiography should also be practiced in recording or describing EHE experiences.
