Abstract [en]

To write the life of another is quite a complex matter. Apparently, in the academic field the biography as a genre has been questioned. While Barthes and Foucault suggested the Death of the Author in the 1960s, the ‘biographical turn’ has made its way back to popularity in the 21st century. This article examines how to write a biography with scientific and critical ambitions. The article concludes that the biographical approach can offer a deeper understanding of the individual in a historical context. However, by using theoretical and methodological tools the genre can be improved.
