1. Shoulder, Justin. Phasmahammer.

Degree: Art, 2016, University of New South Wales

A queer ecosystem is a community of living organisms (witches, gaybies, sissies and fantastic creatures) in conjunction with the non-living components of their environment (things like house music, MDMA and haute-couture), interacting as a system. I use the paradigm of an ecosystem to articulate the complex inter-relationships between the organic and inorganic components of my community as a way of reconciling my practice with nature. Within this queer ecosystem I work as a mythopoeic artist who focuses on the creation of myths relevant to their personal history and community. There is a broad cultural and historical base spanning millennia: from composite fabulae exemplified by the sphinx to the preternatural vampire vividly alive in contemporary pop culture. Drawing from this investigation I have created my own Fantastic Creatures. These beings conflate human, animal and fantasy forms to establish links between nature, culture and spirit. I communicate these stories through a body-based practice. I modify my body through a series of prosthesis: masks and full-body costumes in a process of craft narrative. I propagate my mythopoeia through live performance and video based expression. I schematize these fantastic creatures in a Phasmahammer based on an individualized understanding of the graphic and narrative potential of the bestiary. Medieval bestiaries developed from classical sources were illustrated collections of ordinary, hybrid and mythological creatures featuring allegorical commentary on the moral significance of each figure. Phasmahammer intertwines fact and fable, the familiar and the fantastical. Where once this allegorical process addressed explicitly Christian morals, I refocus this historical approach to project a queered ideology resistive of patriarchal monotheisms, capitalism, hetero-normativity, colonial authority and binary thinking. This bestiary traces the branches of each figure’s evolutionary tree, connecting them to their queer ancestors and delineating blood, clan and family lines. The bestiary looks at the thresholds where these figures exist – their sites of ritual, points of dissemination and modes of storytelling. The intent of the bestiary is to reposition the centralization of the human figure and to place it is as just one of many beings in an ecology, which reimagines and contests established taxonomic hierarchies.

2. Ježovnik, Lea. Zgodbe Spodnje Savinjske doline.

Degree: 2017, Univerza v Mariboru

V magistrskem delu je na podlagi izbranih kratkih proznih besedil predstavljena pokrajina Spodnja Savinjska dolina. Zbrane in predstavljene so zgodbe, katerih književni prostor je Spodnja Savinjska dolina ali pa so se v tem območju ohranile in pripovedovale. Metode dela so izbrane glede na vrsto magistrskega dela, ki je teoretično. V teoretičnem delu so opisane kratke literarne vrste, ki se pojavljajo v izbranih besedilih (pripovedka, pravljica, anekdota). Prav tako je predstavljena tudi Spodnja Savinjska dolina iz zgodovinskega, geografskega in družbenega pogleda. V osrednjem delu je v obliki obnove predstavljenih in analiziranih 83 izbranih zgodb Spodnje Savinjske doline, ki jih lahko uvrstimo med nesnovno kulturno dediščino in v mladinsko književnost. Razvrščene so glede na književni prostor v zgodbi. Ugotovili smo, da se v izbranih kratkih proznih delih odraža način življenja ljudi Spodnje Savinjske doline in njihove navade, še posebej če opazujemo življenje v preteklih časih. Književni prostor v izbranih zgodbah predstavljajo zgodovinsko ali naravno-geografsko zanimivi kraji v pokrajini. Glavne literarne like pa predstavljajo tako pripadniki nižjega kot višjega sloja, svetniki in različna bajeslovna bitja. Večina izbranih zgodb je danes ljudem, sploh mladini, tudi tistim, ki živijo v neposredni bližini kraja, kjer se zgodba odvija, nepoznanih. Stare pripovedi so pomembne, ker so del nas in naše družbe, zato jih moramo ohranjati in pripovedovati prihajajočim rodovom.

In this master's thesis, the region of the Lower Savinja Valley is presented through selected short prose texts. The plots of the stories collected and presented have either taken place in the Lower Savinja Valley or have been preserved and narrated in this region. The methods of work have been selected according to the type of the master's thesis, which is theoretical. The theoretical part describes the short literary types that appear in the selected texts (fables, fairy tales and anecdotes). The Lower Savinja Valley is also presented from a historical, geographical and social point of view. The eighty-three selected stories of the Lower Savinja Valley, which can be classified as intangible cultural heritage and youth literature, are presented and analysed in the main body of the thesis. The stories are ordered according to their literary space. It was found that the selected short prose texts very clearly reflect the past ways of life and the habits of the people of the Lower Savinja Valley. The literary spaces of the selected stories are presented through historically, naturally or geographically interesting places in the region, while the main literary characters are presented by the members of lower and upper classes, saints and various mythical creatures. Nowadays, many adults and young people, and even those who live in the immediate vicinity of the places where the stories unfold are unfamiliar with most of the selected stories. Being as much a part of us as of our society, old stories are important and should be preserved and told to our…
