Finding Working Class Autobiographies

The Writing Lives Project aims to make working-class life writing easily accessible. It will create a searchable database using entries on 2000 memoirs in The Autobiography of the Working Class (edited by J. Burnett, D. Vincent & David Mayall) and add entries on previously unrecorded autobiographies written 1750-Present. The database will be linked to digitized memoirs. Please help us plan this resource by answering our survey.
