It's personal testimony as a literary genre or literature based on personal testimony. It's a nice field because it produces a lot of controversy. Some call it "journalism", others call it "hagiography," others call it "autobiography,", etc. It has plenty of accompanying theories that also get caught in some people's craw: e.g. subaltern studies, cultural studies, etc. I do it because it's interesting and controversial but I try not to let my karma run over my dogma.
