Transformative Works and Cultures announces the release of No. 32, “Fandom and Politics,” guest edited by Ashley Hinck and Amber Davisson. Topics include memes that circulated during the 2016 US presidential election, sports fan activism during the 2016 Rio Games, and MAGA as fandom. Fandoms include Doctor Who, Wolfenstein II, and Taylor Swift. And what issue on this topic would be complete without a discussion of Supernatural’s Misha Collins?
The next issue of TWC, No. 33, “Fan Studies Methodologies,” edited by Julia E. Largent, Milena Popova, and Elise Vist, will appear on June 15, 2020.
We particularly invite fans to submit Symposium articles. Upcoming topical issues are around Fandom and Theatre and Fan Studies Pedagogies; email us if you want to submit a Symposium for either issue, as the calls for full-length papers have closed.
We accept on a rolling basis submissions for our general issues, which always appear on September 15.
