Summary, etc.:
Autoethnography is an autobiographical genre that connects the personal to the cultural, social, and political. The synergies between music and autoethnography are promising, ready to be fully realised. For the first time, this edited volume explores these synergies by presenting work in which the relationship between these two areas is explored through the eyes, ears, emotions, and stories of music and autoethnography practitioners.
