CSU Doctorate: Re-storying collective memory

This evocative autoethnography brings an insider perspective to the CSU doctoral journey. Here, two academics re-write and re-story their own experiences as higher degree research student, Supervisory Team member and post-doctoral scholar. The work re-examines several years of CSU researcher stories, interpretations written about them and how the meaning, of these stories for the researchers, has evolved. Drawing on Revision (Bochner and Ellis, 2016) the writers take published narrative snap shots and transform them into a “kind of text-in-motion” that fast forwards stories into the present (p. 255). This reflexive writing tool invites us to consider how tentative and incomplete stories and memories are, expand our understanding of a culture and offer alternatives to staying stuck with old interpretations.
