My creative thesis is titled "Albatross Landing," and is the first of three stories in the collection A Small Thumbprint. By positing a hypothetical fantasy world containing multiple human subspecies with defamiliarized cultural practices, my project explores the understanding of humans as a biological and theoretical entity, as well as the boundaries between humans, machines, and animals. The group of characters categorized as 'scholars' in my project can be considered posthuman.
