if there is a i is but 1 slide and so as not I want to start by thanking Republica for having me and having in the big stage again which is a very exciting an intimidating place to be and thinking you will for getting up so very early to come listen to me talk about the things allow for the best so I'm I'm I'm not going to dazzle you with slides and partly because I tried to do that once before and then I got distracted by my own slides again she see that happening in the video of my last Republican talk is pretty much there's another side that we have on giving a talk shit yes so that happened candidate avoid that so of made a little collage of all the best things from the internet and them if if this kind of a bingo so you can store all of them are you get some kind of prize and the prize is knowing that you watch too much television so I'm laurie I'm as a writer and journalist and then feminist activist of some kind and demos erect fiction and I'm a huge huge nerd and then in the rest of this talk we're going to go deep deep down in their hole and then if anybody's not OK with that because it is an early in the morning you you can go with it took about fanfiction and and the and all of those sorts of things so that makes you uncomfortable than you can understand and I understand that some prejudice right because the minimum of fanfic or hardly man with a camera and and then have found fake there is no need like to think that we don't have a hierarchy but we really really do and fanfic is a kind of somewhere down and below tabletop
role-playing as an operators somewhere above varies you actually get a kind of a bad rap I cannot fairy myself but I can like in I think people should just be nice to them because really I knew it would not nice enough to fairies um and that's the 1st lesson of the day all right so we're gonna
talk about stories and why stories must and this is something I think about a lot both as a journalist as somebody who writes fiction novels somebody who really is a great deal of fiction
and really reading fiction watching TV is what I did with most of my life and and like I imagine quite a lot of you guys and I think the stories that we tell master a great deal and talking here about pop culture TV comic books yeah science fiction and think science fiction is the most important form of literature and culture by far right now and has been for many many years but particularly when so much about collective imagination is engaged in trying to care for a picture of what the future is going to look like an often getting it wrong that we in Gibson said recently that he is considering stopping writing near future fat near future science fiction because it just doesn't make sense anymore it's stated so quickly and so an when a stock in 1977 and all you know or around the early months of the year 1977 literary history changed forever because that was when the story desert heat was published in a small SO publishes the the story does that he was 1 of the most popular and well known bits of Spock Kirk slash fanfiction and that they is that we found that it's really hard to find good actually appropriate to put on stage pictures of spoken that you wouldn't believe this but it really is but there's some that just google it and turn off the safe search and then yeah yeah you day will be better at least well you they will be stranger but it will also be better at so fan fiction was important to start track and the whole world in the mid loss of Star Trek from the very start in fact fans were instrumental in getting the 2nd series commissioned because they were going to cancel and that the whole history of 20th century science fiction would been different if that had happened but from the very start fans started to write different stories within that world 1 of the things they started to write most enthusiastically once stories about spoken character getting it on and thus slash fiction was born desert he is any and I really encourage you guys to read is completely bring it 7 basically the amino what pond far as we're deep down the noted Iason guess so saponified finer fitted with the for the rest of you guys the normal people out there you should know the Vulcans which is what's properties and they go into sort of heats where they have to have sex so they die and then this is very and and this is that the plot line that launch all of nonfiction and all of slash fiction so the story of desert he is that spoken incur are trapped on a desert planet spot goes into pump our that are now I am in far I must have I will surely die and then this book and cut those basically I volunteers tribute and then quickly and thus
slash is born and then but part of what was or was interesting and important about that apart from that that the rampant silliness which I think is said is is is an important part of any metal has is that in Star Trek itself which was already a very radical show in many many ways it just don't translate today they had a black woman is that relatively major character they
had a Russian character which was now that doesn't look like the big the big
deal that it was the having a Russian character as a heartthrob I mean the point of Chekhov is basically just to be the guy who looks a bit like maybe a member of the Beatles smoking some girl in the back of the set but Pacheco was really important anyway stop talking about self subject so and but what they
couldn't show would is there a friendship between spoken coat becoming something more because only the watch that show that clearly in some kind of relationship the spot relationship is the most important part of that show
emotionally and some the fans were like well they can't show it on TV what we know what's going on really so we're gonna write it will right it because we love the show but it's not quite there it's not quite enough enough and with the right our version it doesn't mean we don't love the original show but we think there should be different
versions of the story I think that is a really really important moment with values and readers and audience members taking control and so fanfiction yes it predates the Internet this was already this is happening in zines and in quantum journals being passed around and shipped across as 1 of them was
called the passionate Vulcan which I think it sounds like a kind of Ladies Home Companion journal which I love I reuse and a if anybody wants to give
me the best present ever light finally an original copy of the passion of spoken in alveolar most treasured possession anyway of the yeah fanfiction now what is fanfiction exploded because of the internet and we're gonna come to that later what that meant for culture how that has changed culture and how the evils in spirit of fan fiction collaborative radical retellings of monarch of modernist unmodern stories have changed the way we interpret culture 2 but I wanna make it clear the stories are not just things we tell to entertain ourselves stories are a way of transmitting culture and in some ways homogenizing culture and they always have been in and did did anybody hear study literature or english literature not
this this if you you don't have to attack conference
BPM of her this OK issue that were entirely unemployable i have that and that's OK I'll bet on
the the earliest studies of English literature and the development of english literature as a discipline what 1 of these stories about it is that it was introduced as a way for women when they were 1st entering universities to study something like and silly because you know we couldn't do classic or physics because our brains would overheat and then our wounds would kind of migrate up and strangle our brains which is a was until quite recently science and but actually that's not what that's kind of awful in itself but that wasn't the earliest teaching of English literature as a discipline earliest teaching of English literature as a subject as a discipline and this is from that Anthony Burgess's history of the of the subject is 7 the within the rise and the British Empire because and when the British at colonize the whole
world which of course will very embarrassed about right now and it is they have to we have to find ways of making sure that British culture was indoctrinated among the local population in most places that we took over it is outside to do you have a flat and that we did this to religion would true Christianity with missionaries we made sure all the local kids were raised to believe in Jesus and the ideals about God and proper behavior that Jesus seemed to be a final which in fact interpretation probably included never rebelling and being just a quiet and good the whole time but in India this didn't work because in india there were already huge religious problems and huge religious tensions and introducing a new religion into that mess was not gonna work so instead they decided to teach all the kids in the schools that they set up an english literature they decided to teach them Shakespeare and Dickens and then and Jane Austen to transfer the ideal of the British culture actually even today I was a writing class recently with them that 2 students from from India and they said were yet this is where we grew up reading Dickens and reading Shakespeare reading Jane Austen and learning that
this was what literature was and this is how you do with story and this is what the hero of the story looks like almost always white and almost always middle class and their English and that's what you have to be to be the hero of the story here is of stories cubby
Indian that can't be you know living outside Europe that's just silly and this is how culture is still transmitted in the formation of those cannons the hot the whole idea of a kernel in the literature that really matters the West Harold Bloom who is a very complicated theories schools is call this the Western canon and the idea that there are panic writers and these are the ones who really matter these are the stories you really matter we have a list we updated every 50 years or so but really doesn't change it's just a lot of white guys and Jane Austen and interestingly enough personal and when is 1 of the hill it yet great as Gwen is 1 of the writers he includes in his last update of the Western canon as the kind of self-appointed died in all of this and so and the idea of monomers
and Mong story once set of stories being important is something that persists throughout English
literature as a discipline and Date but you don't have to study English literature to understand that we are there certain stories that we think are important and certain stories that we don't think are important and this is kind reflected in the cultures well in if the if you that like science fiction until quite recently you probably being used to hearing that the stories that you love on really important you know taking is important but isn't so important such a distance of a statute is really important and I mentioned that I think that anyway of so uh around the middle of the 20th century has anybody come across the hero's journey Hero's Journey anyone whole 1
2 yes yeah I am the hero's journey was a pattern of
story is called the monodromy the Mormon me and it was invented by this guy Joseph Campbell and them in this book the hero's journey and then his idea was that really in every
decent story it won't happen it's 1 pattern of of how the
story goes 1 partner you have here the in the here than meets the mental or and then there's the Call to Adventure and of the 1st the hearer resists the Call to Adventure and then the year of those on a journey and then you meet the secondment or otherwise this and then there's that the princess so the love interest and then there's that meeting with the father figure and you can already tell that this is the plot of Star Wars right also the plot of the matrix the lion king and almost an unknown a lot of film and TV and popular stories of come out since then there's a reason for that is because they copied Joseph Campbell actually was and it was talking to the creators and writers of
Star Wars and and it was specifically developed along those lines was when the 1st films to do that and down the hero's journey is something that an annoyed is a great many writers and thinkers as well as probably a great many people who consume culture because actually stories if you see it again and again and again and no and you know I'm not dissing on the matrix every 1 of the matrix expression lion think star
wars but it gets boring if you using that story again and again and again because part of the reason it's boring is the hero always looks the same he's a young on generally why do you that the fact he's a man is very very important because you want women appear along various parts of the monomers as senior secondary characters Joseph Campbell with actually ask about this by student of his asking that can turn women ever have their own Hero's Journey you can we be the heroes and to according to uh to 1 critic what Joseph Campbell said was women don't need Hero's Journey all through the monolith the woman is then she just needs to realize which she is the place that everyone is trying to get to in the sense that starch bullshitting of still angry when I read that but it explains so much of why women don't appear as heroes and genuinely heroic characters with flaws and obstacles to overcome for so long because
it's big because it's just not seen as the done thing and the anyway so that skip forward now the 19 nineties and specifically to 1998 which was when at the establishment of the website fanfiction . net which was when fanfiction really took off in a really new way and an interesting thing was happening at this time uh within the mainstream literature actually also contemporary experimental science fiction of writers work due back in time when when everyone was really excited by the internet and an the internet which is gonna be this amazing things that change everything and everything was going to be brilliant and LiveJournal still
existed in in it around that time writers but while we got the internet now we don't have to have stories in the
same way when we experiment a white know why do you need a story with a beginning and a middle and an end white you need characters why do you need development you know you could have a story that set on a train carriage with various little bits you can click of people with so writers got so excited by hyperlinks it's really really cute is so lovely readings some list of she studied some of this in union I wrote a completely nonsensical it domain it made sense to me at the time that's because I've been in a library for the about 3 months solid and I came out with don't quite invented 3 new was and then they're like right OK yes have a market is fine now McGowan have walking the sunshine of anyway all of this step is hypertext literature was trying to change the basic form of story what stories meant to do and it turned out that the people still 1 traditional stories people was stories with beginnings middles stories with heroes in protagonists you can follow stories tend impose a general pattern on their horrific randomness of life stories set that can act as mirrors and as windows and can change you and that you can then take on and change your own world and stories that can come to the EU and provide you with a way to rehearse trauma and all of those things that stories is supposed to do and they do do people still want to that but what they wanted what people were stunned to do over on fanfiction . net bit is 1 of those stories to be a little bit different they wanted different kinds of heroes and they wanted different ways of telling you and no and I go deep in the natural and reveal my own you know beginning is as a reader and a right to which is in that Harry Potter and Buffy fan
fiction I think it carried out to came out in 1997 and it was so important to me I was actually I was 11 at the time and I read the 1st Harry Potter book on the nite of my 11th birthday and I set up all nite waiting for my whole what's left turn it it did and now I know it column but in a way is sort of did but I yeah and that then not quite soon afterwards when I was allowed to use that the 1 home computer I was there I found this wild what people were writing all these different versions of the story earned it was really interesting to me people didn't just want to read this 1 story about Harry Potter and what he gets up to people wanted to make it a bit dangerous of sexy they wanted to see
Harry Intrator get together they wanted to see Harry and Snape get together which of the odd they wanted to see various other time in the all of it was about sex yes part because a lot of it was being written
by girls in the early 18 and found it has always been a huge the female thing I think there's there's and that's not a coincidence woman often women out are the biggest readers and they have you know a frustration that they don't necessarily see the stories they want to read in the and the experiences they want to see mirrored represented in their
most popular myths about time but what was interesting about fanfiction was the community developed around you know nobody was saying that it everybody's excited to see her and Intrator get together but nobody is saying that the main story is wrong because it doesn't have that this is just an additional this is another reading and then there's the version where Harry Intrator kill each other in all goes into a dark Gothic world and their self insert characters who are probably burning in the ruins of home ports and it all that stuff all these stories exist at the same time some Member incredibly well done some of them are incredibly badly done some of them are just corner and them and that's OK you know as a pay when your 14 and you you don't want unit you want to have owning to your favorite book which has to be rated the kids and but we think it's most
interesting to me is that all these stories once on the same time rather than once during many stories all occurring within the same Mr.
loss and then in the Harry Potter found was 1 of the places where they really and they really got very early in the copyright law and insight that J Carolyn's them has always been very OK with fanfiction being created is those people don't make money off it you have to put a disclaimer the top saying I don't own these characters myself and the the I'm not making money of this is just attribute this is a fine work and that's fine but this is not a talk talk about copyright but I'm I really wanna see it took about fanfiction copyright so I hope maybe maybe for scheduling next year and 8 7 and in these stories the hero's journey looked a little bit different and they they were re write things like you know they they were raised and characters and there were gender band characters and you had Harry Isabel and you have my any being the most important character in you're actually getting to make decisions for herself rather than just following these 2 random dudes around which is clearly the smartest 1 in the room and and that says
something interesting is happening culture right now which is that all of the kids especially young women who were who grew up writing that fan fiction and reading it on a lot of them and now in their late twenties and early thirties and they're starting to become powerful within the media themselves and they're starting to create stories themselves and they're starting to affect
culture and a more and more from our collective story telling and this is where we get stuff like this and that out there is an affine art rendering of this is all far not by the way and then a link to the artist so much with so it's really important to credit for an artist but that is a picture of her
money I mentioned as any African-American go and and
that was something that had already had a lot of fans in reading the description of her my knees hair which is must've been out of control it would just assuming in their heart of hearts their own canon they hate can which is a word I really love and her mind he was always black and at play has just come out take around is released a sequel to the Harry Potter books in the form of a stage show called the curse child's and the act that has been cast to play her mining is black and that is a huge me you would not expect this to be as huge a deal as it is maybe I'm naive maybe you would but the internet when honors and at
which often does but the the backlash was huge how can you possibly have a black combining the world warning you this is beyond the pale of imagination and it's funny is and how so many people who can imagine dragons
yeah potions that 10 you into somebody else that Veisal perceives death because they can imagine overlap that imagining from
Miami as not white is somehow beyond the pale of imagination and it's it's it's a failure of imagination and this is the case in so much of the critique of the backlash which is on against this new form of storytelling look up all the story that here we have a lot of fun yesterday looking for all of these and picking the best so this is
here this is gender band Esmerelda from Disney 10 is rainy mathematics very rant and this is at the pop up from
star was the poem thin in and all
of these ideas and all of the stories that coming out now this year we got mad max star wars which is essentially that the style was still I loved it just like everybody else loved it right and that it is the same story as the original Star Wars what makes it radical is they've
just changed up the gender and race of the main characters they've made and they have a female heroine as the female hero and they've got a black love interest and that is all you need to make the story so unbelievably radical these days that it will have half the Internet of pronouncing know this is too far yeah real science fiction is about men fighting wars on the moon and that's all it can never be in all ever will be and which is shows that you haven't read half science fiction set and another but
and and this is the same moment but it's just because it's got a female lead it looks so different and it looks so radical and elements and the backlash is definitely on the backlash his own against all of this stuff because of this giant because this failure of imagination that people having and then was that someone phones so apologize so it's important us not to get carried away with how much culture is changing you know that these stories and these retellings of still exceptions to the rule you know women and people of color are still paid less promoted lesson respected lasted almost every level of every creative industries and year for every Jessica Jones there is a dead devil where women exists to killed all rescued or provide some kind of a pneumatic you know interest and plot points for the hero and that's it daredevil is also the hero's journey by the way he had Hero's Journey pops up time and again in comics it's green arrow it's everything but I'm here for every often not yeah there's a Mr. robot and there's not as you know this and but
I watch I should watch a lot of television that's not becoming clear of but the point is that what we have right now is not quality it's not even approaching equality but sometimes and for a certain kind of fun when you've been used to seeing yourself represented in every story and imagine yourself as the hero of every story equality looks a bit like prejudice when you're used to privilege equality looks like prejudice and that is the case in many many social justice arguments that people have in mind never particularly in storytelling because it's something that's so intimate and so important to so many people and the rage that white men have been expressing loudly violently over the very idea that I might find themselves identifying with them with the with the with the characters who were not white men the very idea that heroism might not be particularly to any race or gender The basic idea that the human story is fast and various and we all get to contribute a page that range is petty and it is aware of its own pettiness and then it is like a screaming toddler denied this it becomes more righteous the more it reminds itself that it is only a story but only a story only the things would tell to keep out the darkness only the myths and fables that save us from despair to assess help us establish power destroy it to teach it to the head of the good to describe the limits of desire to keep
us breathing and fighting and yearning and striving wouldn't be so much easier just giving only the constitutive ingredients of every human society since the Stone Age only a story only the most important thing in the whole world the people who are upset that the faces of fiction changing our right to worry it is a fundamental challenge to all worldview that has been too comfortable for too long the part about cultural imagination places white Western men at the center of every story is the same part that legitimizes racism and sexism the part about collected missed us think carriages every girl on every brown boy to identify and sympathize with white male here is is the same part that reacts with rage when white boys are asked to imagine
themselves than anyone else issues if the what does it mean to be a
white cells that you know that that I think that's a nice thing to for you to think about so what does it mean to be a white display reading these books on
watching these new shows watching Mad Max there was a huge feminist backlash to Mad Max which I loved so much basically people putting our warnings saying don't watch this movie too entertaining year you'll love it you'll find yourself loving and then I'll get you feminism will do you have that don't go
and as the ones it mean to be a white by reading these books and watching which these shows way means the same thing it's meant for everyone else to watch every other show that every ever been made it means identify with people who don't look like you talk like you off up like you it's
a challenge and is as radical and useful for whites this boys as the rest of us because stories on mirrors as
and they are also windows they let you see yourself transfigured but they also let you live lives you haven't had the chance to imagine as many other lives is there are stories to be told without once leaving your chair and
and let the people you get only that her mining is black that race as a woman that furious is more of a hero than landmarks people get
angry that Stephen universe exists actual I understand the anger anyone who has ever felt shut out of the story by virtue of their sex or skin color has felt that anger and now imagine that the multiplied a hundredfold and feeling it every time you read or watch or hear or play through a story and imagine how over time that range would harden into bewilderment and finally need exceptions the acceptance that people like you whenever they get to be the hero not really then imagine that suddenly starting to change all this at the end of the day capitalism is just a story religion is just a story patriotic and white supremacy I'm just stories they had a great organizing myths that define our societies and determine of features
and I hope that right now the start of a huge rewriting is underway we can only become
what we can imagine and right now our imagination is being stretched in new ways we're learning as a culture that here always whites this guy's when learning that life and love and villainy and victory might look a little different and that depending on who's telling the story that's a good thing and then
it's not easy and it's not over yet nobody said it was gonna be easy but changing
the world is never easy it takes courage and and that is something I learned from hypothesis and then I like to do a thing thinking is anybody have any questions all comments I don't want should somebody it
going to start a new restaurant designed has to
be a smart within this is longer 0 yesterday are stupid questions it is found
them my I have this question
poets topic of the including norms so when Maria came given that have
gentle sets the uncertainty in the back of the Clintons you over to you yeah I got that touch shot you that when you have this speaking on December and when when when they get
you would have to use this is just a
gentleman the pool red 0 that's lovely that's that's that's that's a
lovely idea I don't know you have to us I why would if I was a founding Editor
I would commission that I think it's lovely as is the stuff that's been done with on this very interesting lately even in the transition between original series and then the yams next generation Due member that episode where they'll go back in time trouble with triples
and they meet the atom horrible as racist stereotypes people in blackface made to look like kind of scary Arabs which is what the Clintons were meant to be a little water who's the on hero of the
hour of the next generation has to be looking that what happened in the that we do not speak it cannot that's how they explain that
what I think it's wonderful if you know that very embarrassing Let's not speak of it again can somebody happily in idea and and and yet the article from you it was bought the move words and about and the like I watched X machine
of example 1 last important and future vision movies lately and and what do you think about femininity in future visions as humans being Robertson
machines what do I think about the mill robot you know on value and it's important I have a lot to extract the memory of of the the answers that you have to have some kind of distilled OK 1
of the interesting things is that people always written stories right right from metropolis on for almost a 100 years now the but in writing in telling stories about feminized or female androids N. a eyes and it is this really interesting mode in it to this in a really interesting fictional mode because from long before we actually have the capacity to make AI we've been imagining robots emerging what it might mean to have robots to do basic work for us for free and that the clue is in the name as robot derives from the Czech word for slave and then right through for Metropolis up to the battles that the latter case the reason the the X matching the the film have we had there is this what the writer capturing crossed calls this a deal the memory of the future and the idea that
we are gonna it we have these creatures were going to exploit them and what Saturn uh look like and then I think it is not accident that we imagine these exploited creatures were designed to be exploited we imagine them as women because I think it's not just about working out whether robots to human it's about working out on a basic level whether women a human and then you can see that the story is always the same right crops up in comics and everything story is you know that young normally shiny Neddie's
sexually frustrated man meets robot girl and goes through this emotional process trying to decide if she really human can I really love potentially
love me back is it OK to have sex with her maybe it's OK I and then it's the story of this guy trying to figure out where the robots the human but actually it's a story about guys trying to figure out where the women a human and you can watch I mean if you're a woman who dates men then you can especially in you liked teens and early twenties you can watch this happening in real life you Glen yes you can you can watch it hasn't really talk I don't have any woman who dates man man man here in this audience has ever been told you know after a couple a dates with that with any died I'm a goodness you just different from all the other gallons president of that yet it's the same thing is that only god I realized you're a human being I think really talk to you you know and it's
like no thank you just insulted more than half my friends M. it is meant to be a complement you not like all these other women your real you're actually human being and recognizing women you know had at an oppressed and
oppressed sex class still as fully human is an identity challenge to demand on the part and it still is on a deep level and damn I think that's 1 of the things that's been worked out and it's 7 you our expectations of technology shape our expectations of of the future itself and their shape by our expectations of gender and it is both interesting and worrying that a lot of the AI is we're designing and when I say we're designing a mean mostly do that designing um are female feminized series before setting is female Cortana Alexa the additive terrible an experiment that Microsoft had making the right the AI on Twitter and yeah she was are meant to be a happy teenage girls and and then you making sex making Pham all these years it seems that people are more comfortable designing a creature to serve their instrument needs and do emotional labels for free they're more comfortable designing that reaches the female because if they designed I think it's because if they designed it male they would have said treated like a person and I think that's that's the answer to does my reverberant cold and the few you know but you know the type
of 2 of my question what's your fault on the house studios Protei use some characters that or maybe in the bottom and other racers or change the gender or something like that when it's made into remove meaning the story was about them Asian character and then going long of generic white guy only bullshit is really I mean lately and yesterday
what was the hashtag that was trending yesterday I don't know who studied it so competent the person and anybody hashtag trending on Twitter as George Takei was involved I know about and uh
asian people not seeing themselves as white washed out that's what it was asian people not seeing themselves represented on-screen because even stories that taken from Panamanian taken from the Japanese and German
Asian stories and then down again by Hollywood they're like that recasting them as white characters and it's them yet I think there is clearly somebody in the studio who was saying well you know nobody's gonna watch a movie with all Japanese characters all Asian characters that's just silly nobody watched them and it was that kind of how that nobody lie watches enemy nobody likes that stuff nobody watches at what what is that stuff so we just cost start Johansen e
everything I don't have a problem with got yeah Hansen and man and I think by I also think that somebody else should get to play robots
someday because I think that this can be seen as valuable as it is now playing all of these robots and all the characters that we're now wondering if a human and 1 area with the new Ghost in the Shell we're talking about what would no want wondering if the human it always start your hands and we seem to be as a species having an existential crisis of the sentences value Hanson and and somebody has now actually
made a start your hands in robot a real 1 so that they can have sex with and Mary and
I I don't know what I would really like to know what style your hands and herself thinks about that and them but anyway yeah the washing is stem is something that is still going on at the last and Bender as well that happened and it is again it's a it's a way of uh In the name of of making money all of of pushing back on the change in culture and the changes stories that is happening and and yet it's it's uh I I don't see any way that it can be positive is taking and it's not that people see that I think studio produces still see white and normally white and male as universal as the d fault the DeVault story that everybody can relate to and them any deviation from that in the view of Hollywood producers I imagine is is a challenge it means it's a threat it means that you know people and at the box office will go and see it because they everybody wants to relate to these characters like the idea that white people could relate to Asian characters is just you know beyond the pale it's nonsense M. but and 1 thing that I think is interesting and good is that that idea of the lowest common denominator of culture becomes more diverse as the Internet becomes more and more powerful and important in shaping culture and in in shaping how these stories are
produced in a have been so much TV is no watch the Netflix for example and other streaming services that idea of box office lowest lowest common
denominators that she becoming less important in terms of how our monuments and our cultural cultural myths are created so you don't know how to make a product that will appeal to that everyone across the board who might possibly watching the watching at 1 time because you can find your audience all over the world and you can find a union at different times you you as shown like and for all its problems and it has many problems it there is some huge problems with it but I like the unbreakable Kimi Schmidt which is 1 of those disappointing shows which is quite feminist book also quite racist and but that even that was considered too radical for prime time TV but it was then commissioned and picked up by netflix netflix is picked up a lot of shows like this and then it went went on and that was and shows like orange is the new
black shows like all from that they may have a life online which they could not have all at the box of and this is why
I think movies are becoming just less and less and less important and less and less relevant and like think this setting Narrative Television is that as the
pre-eminent form of narrative of of this moment right now that's 1 reasons or
and you're talking about 0 the hero's journey
and to legally I don't Irish should get actually agree that
it's already an advantage to the male
blackguarding character who come about how would you imagine a change in the story itself on the intelligibility and from the hero's journey what OK so 1 of events so 1 of the things about the hero's journey itself is that if you if you tell exactly the same story over and over again it gets boring and that is 1 of the 1 of the things that's unusual it that's happening right now within cultures people are realizing that more diversity in culture and storytelling is it's not just good because people because it's more diverse and he placing themselves represents the new ways people are just going to see these things because of that there also better stories because they haven't been told yet you know it's there just better that just more fun and you things like mad max is also said that we extract highly lactate and
things like that max and people don't don't see this story it's too entertaining you'll get the objective it's so that people might go or not go because of the diversity element but actually the stories
of popular because they are original they seem original because they're in new ways in it and adopt new heroes that got new problems they've got problems that people have actually been having for many many years and centuries and generations they just haven't been told in public in public narrative in the same way and but actually the here I think the if the hero's journey is going to have an afterlife it's going to be in things like Star Wars would the new star wars where they just recast it and that's the only way to do the hero's journey in any original way right now 1 of the things that's interesting OK if you look at the hero's journey and it's very very precisely like this happens on chapter in chapter 4 in chapter by chapter 5 he or she must have gone well he must have gone to the new world adventure and taken the 1st steps 1 of 2 things 1 of the stories that hits it and almost that page 4 page is the
Hunger Games the 1st the Games book is just the hero's journey chapter by chapter by chapter nobody is really noticed this because it seems so powerfully original because it's about a girl because the the because jails are
meant to be heroes in that way and and that's 1 of the reasons it is so shocking in such an important piece of culture even though it's just the hero's journey again because they imagine a woman not is just as you can a basic strong female character which is not nonsense but as a woman and a hero with full and and obstacles to overcome who gets to be the hero in parliament so yeah and and I love the Hunger Games and get to talk about it much today but yeah that that's 1 of the reasons
that is so interesting powerful the and I
don't know moment the view OK
finally and I'm very interested
in uh you answer also big star wars and the question of the moment is to really of but we should character I want a Marischal character of Maria Moeller of
summaries then go well you don't know what it means the realization caramelize vocabulary perfect yeah sorry and I mean so what if she's the layoff of watches yet Hamming classes of women will women American of human maker to to be allowed to make failures millions just to be a perfect the income nations um of fanfiction gives you wanna of his so
the whole idea is ending up in the the concept of the
Mary a and the yellow cake so I Mary Sue is a concept that developed within fanfiction it's the yeah the self insert character you know when you write a Harry Potter story whether the exciting new character who is both the vampire under which gets assets with Harry entry go and all you know and everybody loves her at that's embarrassing and and generally Mary Sue has no flaws and then the criticism of rain and some of from many different parts of the Internet was that rate is and Mary Sue in and I think is interesting in itself but is yet raise a character whose heroic and yeah bad ass and she has these amazing skills how you pick those up and then but it's the idea is that if I see is a recognition that this is a fanfic coded retelling of Star was but also it's the idea that you know a woman in a and Mary Sue is meant to be kind of interruption in the story is not a real character it's a kind of upstart character that's the criticism and you know a woman who is perfect and has tons and tons of skills must be in up start she has no place in the story where is a mean daredevil is a married soon background is a marriage to
it's something e-mail characters are Merry so merry Szedmak wasn't UCI somebody remind you of the Matisse due
that's it that's the yeah that's the version but yeah all of
these characters are the is the same self in sort of perfect character and you know it's not criticized when that's a do because the Digimon meant to will not yeah by asking I think raised quite boring character to she doesn't have any flaws that this is different different because practices frightened overtime and she's kind of stubborn and nobody really likes and that's what makes her interesting characters and words right a think they were just a bit nervous about doing what they done anyway so they didn't bother to give her any flawless
she's kind of fighting go that's it but I mean with what we can was it's never gonna be massively radical than the hi I'm sorry it's going to be a dumb question what's your favorite show the dominant view it
comes out as as the way the my
favorite ship was almost we was always Remus and hope but then that became turned and then which was kind of disappointing subtle just thing I was into lights and but that was way back in the day and I always actually I found that thank goodness most of my fan fiction I've read them with evolving community but most of the stuff I actually wrote was on paper in
notebooks and very glad about that right now but said the other day I went back to my mom's house and I found that some of my
old friends it it was really and it was about the found and it was an amazing it was such a marries the character main was this amazing vampire woman who was like English and short and got to have sex with everyone and there were and he
also weights that was centered a really embarrassing but yeah and
yes I am apart from that I couldn't use couldn't
interviews through 1 more question the personally don't with the all you on well I've from right question was not there to boot Mary Stuart's as much to you think that you think about it and Skywalker furious itself and so character for just focus so obviously yeah I think I at the red post by the the Hemel guy might have come through a plates Skywalker
and so on he basically just behave by the judge who constant
from this got the properties of the total that's at the rules
that makes so much sense you I think it was then this is the other questions through 1 more of these resonances 0 yeah over
it so I have entered but the question and and I Europe them people talking about the 6 real orientation optimal Dora and that they want to know what do you think about it because sometimes I think it's a homophobic they need only again Allen only looking for some gay scandal in Maryland and they don't interest and in every 1 of their and our dog is interested in the 6 and orientation of
any value so only in the case right do you think that some of of a out what I think is necessarily with what the
interesting thing about Harry Potter like a lot of why a is them that there's really no sex in actual and actually Remus Intel's
presumably have sex because she's pregnant and last but but it's not ever mentioned but yet nobody's ever be all the character battle characters are apparently asexual because that's how why is written but stumbled know the wife is never mentioned normal of wives are mentioned in the book and daycare and just
comes off and says in 1 interview they should all weights Imagen double Doris Day and that you other the reaction
to that was like wow 0 my god you know this is such a scandal but actually it made sense to a lot of people have been writing and
reading fan fiction and it made sense to a lot of people who you know who had been imagining slightly different versions of those characters that ages that take care is that she really in really interesting right in terms of how she engages with bands and what she allows people to imagine that with the with that costing of a
mining is black and you know when when she was writing that book back in the nineties was she imagining a young black British girl as romani probably not to be erased but she is open to the she understands that fiction is more important than that and that the life of the book is 7 a unit that books can function in a much in a much more Broadway than just 1 right version of it and so she and yet she tweeted yeah massive support for this rolling loves black mining and of course that made everybody even more upset and I think it's semi acted as a revealing that she dimension double Doris Day it's it's so it was really exciting to a lot of readers because there are no openly gay characters in
Harry Potter and them well I mean I don't think so anyway people have different different ideas about the yeah Kenneth Branagh character in in in the 2nd but the movie but that's just like ever notice that the committee and so on and so M. but yeah there are no openly gay characters and this is a way of rectifying that because culture has moved on so far in the 20 years since that that was being written it just has it's a way of keeping it in many ways relevant OK thank you very much for your time I
think you're right fluorophenyl frame we have a even accords almost all the from from the mean would I allerdings like the big enough to make the hidden
of blue sky months last and gives them an install other them through people commutes having become wonderful demanding target yield higher posts vote of uh of tables and diagrams and having seen before giving the sum of the grams loan this sort of a money must visit theories that they would use violence please do most of our faith divide and commonly gets all because after all the hype irons all stage 1 so accords apostle videos on inference to mean we knew that the and

Abstract Stories matter. From video games to Hollywood to fanfiction, the stories we tell about race, gender and sexuality are starting to shift – and the backlash is on. How can we use narrative to change politics for the better?
