Abstract

Abstract:

Our academic identities are constructed performatively through writing. In this article, I use the concept of citationality to examine two literacy autobiographies: one by a published writer and one written by a student of mine. My reading of these narratives exposes a connection between the citing of academic sources and the mechanisms that underlie the construction of new identities.
