1. Adams, Nordette N. The Diary and Notes of Marcus Christian as a Site of Rhetorical Education, Entries 1924-1945.

Degree: MA, English, 2016, University of New Orleans

This thesis asserts that Marcus Bruce Christian (1900-1976), a New Orleans, Louisiana, black poet, writer, and historian, used his diary and notes as a site of rhetorical education and as a space in which he constructed and reinforced a Duboisian ethos, a particular type of black identity and character shaped by the political rhetoric of W. E. B. Du Bois. Maintaining this ethos, Christian, an autodidact throughout most of his life, negotiated a society strangled by white supremacist ideology and resisted being interpellated into the negative black identity constructed by a hostile and stifling Jim Crow South. Advisors/Committee Members: Daniel Doll, Earle Bryant, Robert Shenk.

Subjects/Keywords: rhetorical education; diaries; marcus christian; african-american identity; ethos; African American Studies; Rhetoric and Composition
