Abstract

By the last years of the twentieth century, autobiographical memoirs by professional historians had become relatively common, reflecting the aging of a generation whose lives had been shaped by the dramatic events of that era. Since 2000, however, such publications seem to have become less common. The changing nature of the historical profession may be one reason for this; another is the changing nature of life-writing itself.
