My thesis is an exploration of turn-of-the-century immigrant and minority fiction. I deal specifically with the marginalization of minorities who live in ghettos, how and why such a demarcated place and space informs their social identity, and the function and ramifications of the assimilation process on those individuals, as shown in the fiction of Abraham Cahan, Sui Sin Far, and Zitkala-Sa.
