This roundtable will examine self-representation in fiction (such as the "autobiographical novel") as well as non-fiction. New issues in self-writing that arise with networking and "second life" websites, old but unresolved issues that have to do with "true" versus "fake" memoirs and personal versus disinterested postures in academic writing are some of the avenues of inquiry we will hopefully explore. Abstracts for this panel may cover a wide range of subjects to do with self-writing, from first person fictional "narratives" to first person "non-fictional" narratives, to third person narratives where the writer is manifestly present, because absent.
