Abstract [en]

My point of departure is that feminist research has to have an emancipatory ambition. This paper aims to reflect around self biography as method. Biographies are testimonies from different angels of experiences, including testemonies. Postcolonial feminist theories criticism about west biographical texts focus on a critique in that often use biographical works, which are excluded from the History. On the other way highlight this standpoint on differential self biographies, as a form into positioning on marginalization, and in different contexts. The ambition with this paper is to analyse a couple self biographies written by immigrants. But when I develop the analysis of it’s I will involve my voice in the middle of their. It because, my ambition is to highlight contextualize these works in a critical understanding about “situated knowledge”.
