“The Politics of Space and Importance of Rebuilding the Master’s Residence” and “Postfeminism as Fantasy: Feminism is Ongoing, Political, and Personal” were assignments for Dr. George Grinnell’s ENGL 309 course titled “Modern Critical Theories.” These essays critique social structures such as sexism and racism that historically and currently exist, and their lasting legacies, by highlighting the transformative words of theorists interested in intersectional feminism as well as racial and social justice. In relation to the theme of Re-creation, the works interrogate what it might look like to reimagine a world without these pervasive and oppressive structures.
