1. Tillman, Danielle L. Un-Fairytales: Realism and Black Feminist Rhetoric in the Works of Jessie Fauset.

Degree: MA, English, 2010, Georgia State University

I am baffled each time someone asks me, “Who is Jessie Fauset?” As I delved into critical work written on Fauset, I found her critics dismissed her work because they read them as bad fairytales that showcase the lives of middle-class Blacks. I respectfully disagree. It is true that her novels concentrate on the Black middle-class; they also focus on the realities of Black women, at a time when they were branching out of their homes and starting careers, not out of financial necessity but arising from their desire for working. They establish the start of what Patricia Hill Collins later coined “Black feminism” through strong female characters that refuse to be defined by society. This thesis seeks to add Jessie Fauset to the canon of Black feminists by using Collins’ theories on Black feminism to analyze Fauset’s first two novels, There Is Confusion and Plum Bun. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Elizabeth Burmester, Dr. Pearl McHaney, Dr. Elizabeth West.

2. Smith, Roslyn Nicole. Medias Res, Temporal Double-Consciousness and Resistance in Octavia Butler's Kindred.

Degree: MA, English, 2007, Georgia State University

Dana, the Black female protagonist in Octavia Butler’s novel Kindred (1979), finds herself literally and figuratively in medias res as she sporadically travels between her present day life in 1976 and her ancestral plantation of 1815 – two time periods that represent two converse concepts of her identity as a Black woman. As a result, her time travel experiences cause her to revise her racial and gendered identity from a historically fragmented Black woman, who defines herself solely on her contemporary experiences, to a Black woman who defines herself based on her present life and her personal and ancestral history of experiencing and overcoming racial and gendered oppression. Using Black feminist theory scholarship, this thesis examines Dana’s movement out of in medias res, through temporal double-consciousness, into a historically integrated identity or interstitial consciousness. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Elizabeth West - Chair, Dr. Layli Phillips, Dr. Kameelah Martin Samuel.

Subjects/Keywords: Fantasy; Science Fiction; Black Feminist Theory; Slavery; Identity; English Language and Literature
