Abstract: 

This dissertation is the author’s mourning diary. By way of discursive and poetic, epigraphic and fragmented, graphic and photographic modes of narrative inquiry, he marshals his grief in the aftermath of his parents’ deaths toward recasting broken and dysfunctional parental pedagogies—pedagogies that arrested his artistic aspirations and creative undertakings not only in childhood but over the vast terrain of his adult life—into a new and self-governed curricula; a curricula of self-love providing unencumbered throughways toward uninhibited self-expression and a fracture-free personhood by which to pursue new creative horizons in his senior years.
