This book introduces literary metissage as a way to research, teach, and live ethically -with all our relations- in our precarious times. The authors theorize and perform literary metissage through the praxis of life writing, braiding their autobiographical texts, in various (mixed) genres, into seven themes. altIgLife Writing and Literary Metissage as an Ethos for Our Times explores this writing praxis, with its more inclusive and generative notions of knowledge and knowledge practices, as a tool for creating more just societies and schools.qWe write in various life writing genres such as memoir, poetry, poetic prose, rumination, story, journal, personal essay, ... as epistolary writing, journaling, ruminative and contemplative writing, personal essay, photo essay, and oral storytelling.
