Human Performance and Other Stories is a creative writing thesis composed of a methodological paper and a collection of short fiction. In theme and subtext, these stories are primarily concerned with the material and emotional conditions of marginalized people, artists, and others struggling beneath the accelerating collapse of late capitalism in the United States and abroad. These stories frequently revolve around human connection and isolation; the lived experiences of women, especially women of color; the transmission of generational trauma; mental illness; and the almost imperceptible reminders that persist, in our daily lives, of the potential for us to radically organize toward an equitable future.
