The team behind Fanhackers, the OTW’s project to make fan studies research accessible to fans, is excited to announce the relaunch of their WordPress site.
Over the past years, we’ve built a wonderful following on Tumblr with quotes from academic and non-academic research on fans. We’ll stick around on Tumblr, of course. However, the new site will be a more stable platform to preserve our content. It will also make it easier for us to expand to other platforms and to support non-blog projects that Tumblr can’t accommodate easily. This week will also see our Twitter account starting a regular schedule of updates, so if you’re active there please follow us!
What’s on the new site? The blog, first and foremost, and all the content shared by fannish and scholarly contributors since 2011 (remember when it was the Symposium blog?). We’ll keep filling the blog up with interesting news, quotes from new and old fan studies research, tips and tricks for tools and methods to study fan culture, and advice on how to contribute to the OTW’s open access journal Transformative Works and Cultures.
