Call for Papers: Auto/Biographies of Politicians in Modern European History to be published in the European Journal of Life Writing
Politicians all over Europe used and use to write about their lives. Classical autobiographies written by politicians themselves (and their co-authors or ghost-writers) are published widely. Often the autobiographers intend to contribute to political and historical analyses. Life writing has changed and diversified rapidly during the 20th century, taking place not only in hard copy, but in many different media, like radio, film, television, blogs, and other new social media. So it seems a good moment to look how the genre of autobiography of politicians has changed during the 20th century.
