Imagining the (queer) Witch

“Queer­ing the Witch opens up the def­i­n­i­tion of who is con­sid­ered a witch. His­tor­i­cal­ly speak­ing, the major­i­ty of accused and con­vict­ed witch­es are iden­ti­fied as women; but why not expand the def­i­n­i­tion to include oth­er com­mu­ni­ties that face dis­crim­i­na­tion because they con­tra­dict the so-called norm?” 

The magical realism of ‘Squid Game’ shows the contradictions of funny money and dodgy contracts

The mag­i­cal real­ism of ‘Squid Game’ draws from con­tem­po­rary South Kore­an culture’s mix of advanced tech­nolo­gies and tra­di­tion­al hier­ar­chies, but the rep­re­sent­ed inequities also reflect glob­al truths about how we val­ue human labour and life.
