Fantasy and the supernatural, broadly defined, shape many popular narratives and universes—from Lord of the Rings to Game of Thrones, from World of Warcraft to The Witcher, from classical and medieval tales of monsters and dragons to the worlds of N.K. Jemisin, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Nnedi Okorafor, and Ursula K. Le Guin. As a genre, fantasy engages with questions of rhetoric, identity, and power in multiple ways, across media, subgenres, and cultural traditions; the enchantment of fantastic and supernatural narratives casts a persistent and global spell.

· How does popular music manifest the intertextual and intersectional realities of (post)modern life?

Alcoholism has ruined many families, individuals and relationships. Its impact has not been restricted to just the physical health of the person but has often caused irrevocable harm to the mental health of the individual as well as those associated with the individual, making it as much a health hazard as a social concern. There are several states in India that ban the sale and use of alcohol and are designated dry states. Hooch tragedies are commonly reported.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Abstract

ontemporary literary, computer game, and cinematic history are rife with forms of interactive fiction and storytelling. Gamebooks such as the Bantam Choose Your Own Adventure series of children’s books, video games from early text-based games like Zork to more contemporary gaming, and interactive movies of the type becoming increasingly common through streaming technologies, allow for a different kind of relationship between audiences and narratives.

These types of narratives have been read, watched, and played by adults and children alike with increased regularity since the popularization of the form in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
