Autobiography in Science Education: Greater Objectivity through Local Knowledge.
Barton, Angela Calabrese; Darkside
Research in Science Education, v30 n1 p23-42 2000
Suggest that autobiography ought to be considered both the telling of one's story and the using of that story with others to understand and use difference productively. Claims that autobiography, as telling and interacting, dismantles the universalistic tug of science as local knowledge. Presents selected autobiographical accounts to make both arguments.
