Middle Eastern Lives: The Practice of Biography and Self-Narrative - Kramer, Martin S, and Merkaz Dayan Le-Heker Ha-Mizrah Ha-Tikhon Ve-Afrikah (Universitat Tel-Aviv)

A dialogue on the role of biography and the interpretation of self-narrative in the Middle East. The dearth of intimate source materials, the discrepancy between public and private personae of Muslim intellectuals and the sense of propriety challenge this genre.
