Abstract:

"Whether in comment writing, personal columns, confessional journalism or blogging, speaking personally is a dominant feature of contemporary journalism. Yet critical discussion often ignores the personal voice, positioning first-person journalism as less worthy than 'objective' reporting. Speaking Personally explores how and why personal voices have come to play such an important role in journalism. Covering the history, functions and forms of personal journalism, the book examines the influence of 'New Journalism' in the 1960s and 1970s, considers the impact of social movements such as feminism and addresses ethical issues surrounding different genres of personal writing."--Page 4 of cover.
