THESIS TITLE - HOMOCAUST: Exhausting the Burning Stick: A Rhizomatic Nomadic Celebration of Queering Pilgrimage Amidst Awakening in Performance Faggotry

Research Synopsis

My poetic inquiry explores the line of conflict between historic tragic brutality and the poetic act. The poems are fragmented, inspired by Deleuze & Guattari and Edouard Glissant's theories.

My literary work shifts into a poetic discursive narrative mutating through exploring memory, decolonizing, otherness, romanticization of the other, queering identity, and elicit performance of queer identity with overlapping Rhizomatic voices.

I use qualitative methods using an art-based, critical, deconstructed  non-essentialists-phenomenological hermeneutic approach. My poetic inquiry here contributes to new foundations in Creative Writing, Queer, Feminist, and Pilgrimage studies along with Rhizomatic-Nomadic studies. Due to the work's premise of living the rhizomatic in errantry.
