Autobiography and memoir have become canonical staples, but also contested sites for discussing the boundaries of fictional and non-fictional self-representation. Presentations invited exploring the teaching of these narratives at the intersection of memory and invention.

Send 300 word abstracts and brief biographies to sdonohue@cocc.edu by or before Friday, March 14th.

All submissions welcome; however, we are particularly interested in teaching strategies for the lower division classroom.
