What Is The Meta With You

Kam Raslan | Lee Chwi Lynn | Matt Armitage

13-Jan-18 17:00

What

Our food for thought this week explores the grimmer fates of characters in Asian cinemas, the (ab)use of language in pop culture, and the tectonic shift in gender and cultural adjustments happening in the world today. Kam kicks things off by pondering over the tendency of characters in Korean movies to be killed off compared to Hollywood narratives. Delving into the realm of pop-culture buzzwords, Matt airs his confusion over the ubiquitous 'meta' - an adjective many seem to tack on to any conversation and context these days. Finally Lynn takes on #culturaladjustments by reflecting on her effort to include more non-male authors in her cultural and literary consumption.
