Abstract

New technologies for representing and communicating autoethnographies make it possible to be publicly visible in new and interesting ways that weren’t possible prior to the digital revolution. An important ingredient in this process is the Internet platforms that can make the digitization of performances accessible across the world, even for short, modest creations from less experienced digital storytellers and film makers. As an illustration of the potential applications of digital technologies for “taking” autoethnographic research to the “public,” and making our research accessible to a wider audience, we share “Reverberations,” a collaborative autoethnography exploring bullying, homophobia, and other types of sexual harassment and associated feelings of shame, embarrassment, and fear which often surround these topics.
