About This Blog

Welcome to Writing Fan Culture, a site where I tackle popular media, fan engagement with said media, and the rest of the world's response to both. I am a Television and Media scholar with a specialization in Fan Studies, student on her way to a PhD, fanfic author, and self-identified "fangirl." I work to ensure that my personal involvement in fan culture positively influences my research of it and vice versa. Thus, above you'll find not only the standard pages of an academic website—CV, courses, publications—but also a blog where I express much more casual opinions on various forms of fandom.
