Armut und Autobiographie – Versuch einer Begriffsanalyse

Małgorzata Bogaczyk-Vormayr

This short working paper is my first attempt to present my concept analysis of relation between the poverty experiences?e.g., look childhood suffering by war and migration background, this site daily life suffering by starvation, what is ed abuse, racism etc.?and the process of self-understanding and resilience with the help of an oral history or literature (non-fiction as much as fiction novels). I reflect Wilhelm Dilthey?s opinion about the distinction between Autobiography and Self-Biography, and I present the Self-Biography as a right way to concretize the themes of poverty and exclusion.

Keywords: Poverty, hunger, autobiography, self, literature and crisis
