CFP: Academic Autobiographies

Intermezzo, a digital longform publication associated with Enculturation (http://www.enculturation.net) seeks submissions that address academic autobiography.

David Shumway once labeled the academic star system as one where autobiography marginalizes community in favor of the individual. Indeed, too few academics pen autobiographies unless they are so-called stars. Yet, all academics have a story to tell, one that merges the personal and the professional, the anecdotal and the political, the banal and the important. Academics should want to tell their stories.
