    The controversy of the hit-show Euphoria, trigger warning?

    Discuss the context and content of the popular show Euphoria, most widely watched by adolescents. Consider its graphic depictions of sex, drugs, and self-harm. Many of the actors on the show have issued trigger warnings. Does the show romanticize self-harm, drug use, etc? With it’s music-video esque film style, does it glorify these issues? Or does it normalize them in a way that makes viewers feel less alone?

    • This is a super interesting and nuanced topic that I think could be written about in great depth! On one hand, I personally believe the show seems to teeter between romanticising and creating awareness, with season 2 seemingly falling more towards glorification in the earlier episodes. However, the question of the visuals impacting the core message is a super interesting one - could it be harmful to make such dark matters visually appealing and will that affect one's psyche in a manner that the show may not have intended? Great topic! – Mana 3 months ago

    • That would definitely be something interesting to explore. A really complex analysis could be made. – danitamapes 2 months ago

    • I think this has the potential to be a very insightful and nuanced piece! In my opinion, Euphoria likes to play up a lot of the more dramatic and explicit aspects of itself in order to create a deeper sense of investment from us. In season two in particular, I found myself disappointed after almost every episode and quite upset with how it all turned out, but like the show depicts I kept coming back. I kept chasing the potential for the show feeling good to watch again, perhaps in futility. It is certainly not the same as any serious addiction, but I think the show has ambitions to really say something about what it's like to watch and experience something so difficult. I hope this was helpful! – noahlsmith 2 months ago

    • I think the popularization of Euphoria-inspired makeup and fashion among primarily teen girls on social media could be an interesting aspect to explore here as well as it relates to the glamorization of the show and its content. – roseytay 3 weeks ago

    Love learning about younger, contemporary poets. It’s important to celebrate these voices and discuss them in addition–or in conversation with–the older, male, lauded voices that dominate the history of poetry.

    LOVE season two–more than the first. Role of Hot Priest is brilliant.

    I agree. I always thought of the parallels between the stigma surrounding “muggles,” particularly the disdain among the Death Eaters for the ‘race.’ with anti-semitism in Nazi Germany. It is not a coincidence that Malfoy and his family look Aryan.
