This thesis is a multi-genre collection representing the creative interpretation and
critical examination of the functions of silence, refusal, and failure in a materialist
feminist negotiation of embodied resistance. It examines the development of character
through matrices of structural oppression and the marks left on bodies through
biopolitical processes. Various approaches are presented as experimental and expressive
rather than exhaustive.
