Saturday, December 1, 2018

Tales, fables, fragments, sketches, and other short literary forms have comprised the fabric of scary stories told and re-told, adapted, transformed, appropriated and re-appropriated. Their brevity is, and was often, central to their wider dissemination, and for the publication and democratisation of voices that might have otherwise remained unheard; allowing them to be accessed by those who might have otherwise been excluded. Much of their debt is, undoubtedly owed to the oral yarn, the fireside tale, the urban legend, and many have, and remain, connected to a diverse and rich visual culture.

Recent upheaval from the Trump administration’s policy-making in the United States has seen the lives of queer subjects radically altered. This has included numerous executive orders that seek to curtail the power and agency of certain groups based on race, disability, gender, and sexuality particularly. Such identity distinctions are being made through an increasingly nationalist, and therefore heteronormative, lens which lends itself to the supremacy of ideals that support hegemonic cultural discourse.

Since its creation in the mid-20th century, fantasy sport has become a significant part of international sport and its history. Once an obscure subculture of statistics-obsessed sports fans, fantasy sport now constitutes a cultural phenomenon with 59.3 million North American participants in 2017 and with tens of millions more throughout the world. According to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, North American participants alone spend an average of $556 a year on fantasy sport and related materials, amounting to almost $33 billion in annual revenue. With this level of fan interest and earning capacity, fantasy sport is now a major force within the global sport industry.
