Abstract:

This thesis project is composed as a hypertext-based Website in which the pages are nonfiction stories about family. In large part, the text itself adheres to the literary tradition of family memoir, exploring themes of dysfunction, communication, and family history. However, this project deviates substantially from traditional memoir in terms of form. The hypertext space within which the stories exist allows for building of individualized narratives by the user through semantic linking. Through this hypertext space, I provide the possibility for representing my family through various lenses and media.
