    Summary

    This week we take a step to the right, away from academic discussions of fandom, to look at Janice Radway's classic ethnographic study of romance novel readers, Reading the Romance: Women, Patriarchy, and Popular Literature. This text is continuously referenced in fan studies, with very good reason we think, now that we've read it. Please come and settle in for Episode 6! PLEASE NOTE - We do talk about the place of rape in romance stories in this podcast.

    This was recorded quite a while ago now, but we do hope to have something to offer you in the not toooooo distant future.

    Also, please enjoy this episode's recs! Some of us tried to pick something that fit into the discussion themes, with varying levels of success, but they are all excellent stories and we hope you enjoy them regardless!

    Summary

    Annnd we're... well, we're here! With Episode Five!! We've got one more in the pipes that was recorded a while ago and are actively seeking out some new material to talk about, if we can all get together to do so!

    For the moment, we apologize for the delay between postings, and we would like to offer you our thoughts on two articles:

    "The Cultural Economy of Fandom" by John Fiske (1992) from The Adoring Audience: Fan Culture and Popular Media, edited by Lisa A. Lewis, p. 30-49,
    and
    "A Fannish Field of Value: Online Fan Gift Culture" by Karen Hellekson (2009) from Cinema Journal Vol. 48(4), p. 113-118.

    As always, we welcome any feedback and further discussion! Please feel free to subscribe here, or join us on the ficthropology community on livejournal or dreamwidth, and thank you for listening!

    Summary

    Many apologies for the long break! Technical difficulties led to a rather lengthy editing ordeal. But here we are back again, ready to delve into the wonderful world of fanfic with EPISODE 4. (*muppet arm flail*) This episode we tackle "Silence in the Library: Archives and the Preservation of Fannish History" by Versaphile and "An Archive of One's Own: Subcultural Creativity and the Politics of Conservation" by Alexis Lothian, both from the online journal Transformative Works and Cultures.

    Summary

    Okay, after a long delay (for which I apologize profusely), we are finally back with Episode 3. Hooray! In this episode, we follow on from last time with a discussion of what constitutes fanfiction and how it is best described and understood. Is there really a good metaphor that can encompass this whole crazy, multi-faceted world? Thus we tackle "Archontic Literature: A Definition, a History, and Several Theories of Fan Fiction" by Abigail Derecho. It is the first chapter in Karen Hellekson and Kristina Busse's Fan Fiction and Fan Communities in the Age of the Internet: New Essays (2006). We hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    For our second episode, we introduce our fourth contributor, Earis, and spiral off on an involved discussion of Henry Jenkin's 1992 book Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture. This text is now twenty years old, but though it is dated, still contains some interesting insights into fandom, and seemed like a reasonable place for us to start delving into an exploration of academic works on fandoms. Please share this around if you're interested, and feel free to join our communities on either Livejournal or Dreamwidth to get regular updates. We have plans to start crossposting to Tumblr as well, and if anyone has suggestions on how to promote and disseminate this podcast, we would be pleased to hear about it!
