Since more than a decade, I am working on biography – in research as well as in teaching. I am currently searching for academic publications on marginalized subjects for an overview of biographies in the field of history. While I know good studies of women or of transnational lives, I had not yet found many books on ‘queer lives’. (Note: I am more interested in biographies than in autobiographies though the concept of life writing does not necessarly distinguish these genres.).
