„Zawsze zwycięskie, waleczne, rycerskie”. Neomediewalizm jako wyznacznik antropomorfizmu w inspirowanej serialem Gumisie fanowskiej twórczości rodziców


Jak widać już w sekwencji początkowej, serial Gumisie (1985–1991) posługuje się neomediewalizmem, aby potwierdzić antropomorfizm tytułowych postaci. Ponad 35 lat po emisji pierwszego odcinka zjawisko to jest nadal łatwe do odnalezienia w fanowskiej twórczości rodziców, czyli internetowych opowieściach o gumisiach, napisanych dla dzieci przez dorosłych. Artykuł dotyczy dwóch ewidentnie pomijanych kwestii: serialu Gumisie i fanowskiej twórczości inspirowanej tym programem. Autorka wykazuje, że antropomorficzna percepcja oferuje nowe spojrzenie na relacje człowieka ze środowiskiem naturalnym i traktowanie zwierząt, a tym samym przyczynia się do budowania społecznej świadomości ekologicznej i praw zwierząt, zwłaszcza w odniesieniu do przyszłych pokoleń.
