Editorial Reviews

Review

Laura Beard's Acts of Narrative Resistance is a provocative and important intervention into theorizing women's autobiography in the Americas. Her comparative reading of Latin American women's life writing and Native Canadian narratives of the last three decades reframes theories grounded in the dominant Euro-American model and foregrounds hybrid autofictional forms such as the family saga, the testimonial, and metafiction. And Beard's focus on practice in and out of the classroom makes this study refreshingly useful for courses that take up resistance, whether in art or in life.

(Julia Watson, Associate Dean of Humanities, The Ohio State University)
