Volume 13 (2024) out now!


We are pleased to announce that the first articles of volume 13 of the European Journal of Life Writing are now online. The 2024 edition of the journal is off to a great start with the papers "Life Writing at the Terminus: Glacier Memoirs and Planetary Relationality" by John Zuern and "Marina Warner’s Inventory of A Life Mislaid: An Unreliable Memoir. From Memoir to Filiation Narrative" by Souhir Zekri Masson; and a book review of Virginia Newhall Rademacher's Derivative Lives. Biofiction, Uncertainty, and Speculative Risk in Contemporary Spanish Narrative by J. Ignacio Díez.

We look forward to more publications over the coming months. When visiting our website, do also have a look at the book reviews that we finished volume 12 with: Life Writing in the Posthuman Anthropocene edited by Ina Batzke, Lea Spinoza Garrido and Linda M. Hess, reviewed by Inés García; Élise Hugueny-Léger's Projections de soi. Identités et images en mouvement dans l'autofiction, reviewed by Maaike Koffeman; and Imagining Gender in Biographical Fiction edited by Julia Novak and Caitríona Ní Dhúill, reviewed by Bethany Lane.

Long-term followers of the journal may have noticed we have been a bit quiet on social media lately. We are currently revising our social media presence and will soon share an update on this with you.

As always, you are cordially invited to publish your life writing research, book reviews and creative matters in our journal. Guidelines can be found here or you can contact us at ejlw@rug.nl if you have any questions about the process.

Warm regards, also on behalf of the journal's board and editorial team,

Sjoerd-Jeroen Moenandar
Journal Manager
