What is Autoethnography? Greek roots: autós = self + ethnos = people + graphia = writing. Autoethnography is an type of self-reflexive, autobiographical academic writing that:
*1) uses a researcher’s personal experience to describe and critique cultural beliefs, practices, and experiences; 2) acknowledges and values a researcher’s relationships with others; 3) uses deep and careful self-reflection—typically referred to as “reflexivity”—to name and interrogate the intersections between self and society, the particular and the general, the personal and the political; 4) Shows people in the process of figuring out what to do, how to live, and the meaning of their struggles; 5) balances intellectual and methodological rigor, emotion, and creativity; and 6) strives for social justice and to make life better.

In 750-1000 words, analyze your own relationship to music. Why do you engage with music the way that you do? Did you receive musical instruction as a child? Do you now? What were the aesthetic and ideological components of this instruction? What part did music play in your family life as a child? How did your family or nuclear community cultivate particular musical tastes in you? What do you enjoy now? What do you not enjoy? How do you engage with others based on their musical preferences? Have you created community or sustained relationships through or around music? Would you consider music an essential part of your identity? Your daily life? Your health? Your religion? What aspect of music do you wish you knew more about? Select a few specific songs, sounds, or experiences to serve as examples in your discussion. Make sure your paper contains proper citations if you choose to use outside sources. Please see me if you have questions about citations. While it is early, it is my hope that this auto-ethnography will allow you to begin thinking about what matters to you musically so you may create a framework for yourself in which to think about and contextualize the information for this course. This is also a good time to start brainstorming ideas for your course project.
