Egodocuments and History Series

In recent years the interest in egodocuments, a new term covering all forms of autobiographical writing, has expanded in history and other disciplines. This series publishes books addressing two overlapping and connected fields of study: cultural and social history based on egodocuments, and studies of the history of autobiographical writing within a cultural and social context. In some cases the subject may be an individual text or author, while in others the focus may be on collections of diaries, memoirs, and letters, or groups of authors.

Egodocuments and History is a broadly conceived series open to multi-disciplinary and innovative research. Publications will address issues that have come to the forefront of research in this field, including autofiction, ghostwriting, authenticity, memory, and the relationship between written, oral and visual culture. The historical range of the series is broad, from the Middle Ages to the present, as is the range of countries and languages of textual origin in consideration – all are welcome.
