    Buffy as a role model for us all

    Link the narrative arcs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BtVS) to the #metoo movement. Buffy manages to be the one who saves the world (with the Scooby gang) whilst working her way through a number of relationships with the ‘wrong’ man. These included the bad boy who can’t be saved, the stalked, the good guy who finished last and ‘beer goggles’. in the context of metoo – how is Buffy conceptualised in present day through this lens?

    Helpful – I teach at a university (sessional) and the standard come sometimes be interesting! The learning associated with the craft of academic writing needs to be consolidated prior to the beginning rather than finally honing this skill by the end of the degree. Quality peer groups add to this and allowing time for them is our challenge – thanks for the article!

    Crafting the College Essay: Method and Motivation

    JK Rowling encourages us to look towards the worlds we don’t know, leaning into their reality, partly to extend their own. The dystopian lens allows us to explore the dark shadows of our psyche rather than the cool stream which flows gently on the surface – the crux (or horcrux) of the matter is shining the light and not being scared of what we see.
