Narratives are powerful. We tend to live within and reenact the stories we tell ourselves. As such, the fantastique can serve as imaginative literature that reveals not only the world we know, but can also empower us to envision and manifest new lives and futures. On Tuesday, November 14th, join CTS PhD student Jess Peacock for a discssion on how narratives such as the film Okja and the Gospels can break our hearts and instigate revolution, challenging the culture to move beyond the narratives that compel the ritual of consumption, and embrace a new intersectional ethos of the sacredness of all life.
