dc.description.abstractThe grim fantasy genre was once a product of Butler's resistant strategies against women's erasure from science fiction, fantasy, and slave narratives. The baton has been passed to De Veux in this never ending-fight against neoliberal impulses to white wash a horrid history of anti-black torture and the destruction of women's selfhood. Connecting Butler's concept, grim fantasy, with Wynter's concept, demonic grounds, allows for a productive reading of Kindred and Yabo's ambiguous and complex conclusions. Exploring the unwritten geographies with literature reveals a lacking in black women subject formation that was a product of systematic onslaught against them.en
