Paper Summaries:

Irikidzayi Manase (U Free State), “Imagining the human and ecological conditions in futurist South Africa of 27 April 2034”

The paper analyses speculative stories from the South Africa Sunday Times Lifestyle Magazine of 27 April 2014 set in 2034 to critically unpack imaginings of the human condition and senses of the nation as a shared common in the larger human-animal and non-human paradigm of the near future.

Roopa Philip (Jyoti Nivas College), “Globalisation, Beauty, and the Woman: A Study of Contemporary Women’s Magazines in India”

While the images and language women’s lifestyle magazines in India speak of empowerment and agency, it is necessary to analyse and critically examine them in relation to patriarchy, race, nation, religion and capitalism. The language of feminism, gender justice and equality can be and is coopted by the structures of power and money.
