Lifetime Contribution Award

The conference committee invite nominations for the fifth “Lifetime Contribution in Autoethnography Award”. This award recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the development and nurturance of the field of autoethnography and/or those working within it. The award seeks to recognise, honour and give thanks to those who have supported this genre of research, scholarship and activism. We would like this recognition to be awarded from ‘the autoethnography community’ as a collective.  

If you would like to nominate someone for the 5th Lifetime Contribution in Autoethnography Award please email Trude Goril Klevan  Trude.Goril.Klevan@usn.no with a short letter providing a rationale for your nomination.
