Re-Thinking Biography

Abstract

Should biography have a place within a conference like the present one? Does biography have a legitimate role to play in humanities and social science research as conceived and practiced today, in the twenty-first century? Or is biography, as Bourdieu (1986: 69) once claimed, a cheat: “one of those common sense notions that have somehow managed to sneak their way into scientific discourse‿?

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
