Foz Meadows

  • Author

Foz lives in Melbourne. Her first title, Solace and Grief was published in 2010, and its sequel, The Key to Starveldtwas published in 2011 (both by Ford Street).

Foz gives presentations and holds workshops for young adults and adults. Throughout history, human beings have used stories as a means of understanding the world around them, not only in terms of natural phenomena, but culture, behaviour and emotion. Though many different social structures have come and gone, people still tell stories about themselves, alternately reinforcing and questioning their roles in life.

Mythological archetypes (gods, heroes, etc.) and modern stereotypes (jocks, bimbos, rebels, nerds) present a powerful vehicle for discussing notions of identity, strength, exclusion, popularity and human nature. Foz will talk about how these ideas frequently collide in modern pop culture, particularly in works of fantasy, and how contrasting the original mythologies with their recent representations can lead to a greater understanding and appreciation of narrative.
