One comment to your (preliminary) purpose:

A question to ponder: Will your work focus on communities of autoethnographers, whether they exist or should be built (out), or will you focus on the place for autoethnographers within existing (and more traditional) research communities of practice? Cf Wenger and his concepts of peripherality and marginality – different, but both types of non-participation. Peripherality as an enabling aspect of participation; marginality as problematic for full participation.
