Editors: Wits Centre for Diversity Studies and Convivial Thinking Editorial Collective
The Oxfam Inequality Report is a yearly reminder of the pervasiveness and depth of embedded injustices and inequalities in our daily lives. Colonial trajectories continue to shape contemporary tendencies to universalise the constitutive elements of a ‘good life’, encapsulated in global goals such as the SDGs. The resultant erasure denies other social and political imaginaries, other ways of knowing and understanding the world; as the Zapatista say, ‘a world of many worlds’, wherein we collectively create pluriversal spaces to flourish.

THE IDEA OF THE EDITED BOOK:
Law fostering sustainability and sustainable development is one of the fastest-developing, most challenging legal disciplines globally. Sustainability has many different definitions, but its essence was articulated by the Brundtland Commission, tasked by the UN in 1987 to formulate a global agenda for change: “Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. The edited volume “Law and Sustainability” analyses the ways on how law and legal profession should change and contribute to sustainability.

Over the past few decades we have seen a sharp rise in the number of central female characters in TV series, offering a wide palette of complex female identities, characters following very diverse narrative journeys. Whether we have in mind the genius and tortured nature of the heroine of Homeland (Showtime, 2011 - 2020) and Killing Eve (BBC One, 2018 -). Or the whole gallery of characters in Orange is the New Black (Netflix, 2013 - 2019) or the different seasons of This is England (Channel 4, 2006 – 2015),the importance of central female figures is well established and even conveyed and measured by monitoring centres of the audio-visual sector.

From the famous castle of Hogwarts to Sunnydale high school and the magical academy of Aretuza, Fantasy stories are frequently set in school settings, especially when they are addressed to young readers and viewers. These familiar and possibly reassuring surroundings can hide important mysteries, including secret and magical passages or vampire-teachers, thus creating either worry or wonder.
