Prerequisites
General Prerequisites
The seminar aims at familiarizing students with biography and auto-biography as research methods in approaching and analyzing texts. Through this familiarity they will be able to understand the processes by which individuals construct their subjectivity and try to acquire a voice and talk about their public and private lives.
