Gender, Politics, and Participation: The Contests of Autobiographical Writings in Poland
This article discusses the connections between gender, politics of participation and of truth through the lens of life stories. They take as an example the contests of autobiographical writing which took place in Poland between the two World Wars. Poland after the First World War can be a good example to analyze the social and political meanings of participation, because it was a newly founded state with a huge tradition in autobiographical writing.
