In this chapter, I consider the legacy of the work of Carolyn Ellis and Art Bochner for autoethnography and narrative inquiry through the lens of Alyson Campbell’s notion of feral pedagogies. Carolyn and Art’s work, ways of living and mentoring and building community embody the importance of becoming wild in the academy through collective “engagement with teaching and learning in a spirit of generosity that is removed from the elitism of academic institutions and the professionalization” or research training (Campbell 2018).
