about

Analyzing ninety professional women's autobiographies from 1900-1920, the first part of this book concentrates on the endeavours of groups such as headmistresses, doctors, nurses, artists and writers to record their own lives, while the second part examines frontispiece photos, prefatory marginalia and the role of silences in autobiography.
Christine Etherington-Wright is Senior Lecturer in Film Studies and Course Leader of the BA (Hons) Film Studies programme at the University of Portsmouth, UK. Over the years she has taught a range of different courses on gender issues, British Cinema, film theory and literary adaptations.
