Our Group: Alana Smith, Emma Ralphs & myself Carah.

Together we conducted an Autoethnographic study of Women Warriors in relation to Chinese Martial Arts Films. Before we go into our topic we must first understand what an Autoethnographic study is. According to communications scholar Caroline Ellis, Autoethnography is an approach to research and writing that seeks to describe and systematically analyze personal experiences in order to understand cultural experiences. In order to undertake our autoethnographic study, we first chose a specific culture (China), then looked at our own preconceived understanding of this culture. We then gathered secondary information and reflected on our own experiences of the Chinese film culture.
