    red and white banner, two people speaking, OTW in both word bubbles

    In July, the OTW joined with The Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) and fans from around the world to promote their Fan Works Are Fair Use (FWAFU) campaign. Part of the OTW's mission since its founding has been to support transformative works that manifest as fanfiction, fanart, fan films, discussion communities, cosplay and other forms of fannish creativity. With the HPA, we are working to build a community of 5,000 fans and fan creators interested in protecting all types of fan-made works.

    The campaign has launched with a celebration of fanworks on social media. Using #FanWorksTaughtMe, fans are discussing the different skills, perspectives, and communities they have gained from fanworks that they love. Contributions span from tweets to videos and are shedding light on how fans use fanworks to build their confidence, refine their skills, explore issues like race and gender, understand the perspectives of others, and more.

    Several artists and fan creators are already celebrating fanworks through the campaign. Sleepy Hollow’s Orlando Jones has signed on as a spokesperson for the campaign, along with FictionAlley co-founder/original OTW Legal Committee member Heidi Tandy, wizard rockers Harry and the Potters, YouTubers Kristina Horner and Lauren Fairweather, and novelist Naomi Novik, one of the OTW's founders.

    Fandom is not a passive experience. Today, fan creators actively help to bring in new fans and add to new energy that benefits the source material and its creators. The FWAFU coalition believes that this culture is worth celebrating and protecting. If you’ve ever enjoyed a piece of fan work, you probably do, too. Visit to join the community and add your voice to the celebration using the hashtag #FanWorksTaughtMe.

    Fan Works Are Fair Use grew from the fact that, under US copyright law, it is fair to use copyrighted material for certain uses, including commenting on the original, which is usually the purpose or inspiration behind fanworks. Fan Works Are Fair Use and the #FanworksTaughtMe hashtag inform fans of their right to be creative, and support changes to US copyright law that protect original content creators as well as fan creators who produce beloved parodies, homages, and works of art honoring the source material.

  • OTW Fannews: Fanworks of Note

    • An article at Huffington Post featured interpretations of Harry Potter characters that raceswapped their movie representations. "For many artists, Hermione's vague physical description has presented an opportunity to represent the character very differently. Instead of the 'bushy' hair JK Rowling often describes in the books, maybe she has kinky-curly hair. Instead of simply being tan, maybe she has dark brown skin. A black Hermione Granger isn't just a chance to see something new, but an opportunity to create a more complex reading of the book series, which has political themes that draw parallels between the Death Eaters and racist hate groups."
    • A post at io9 directed viewers to a tribute video of Hayao Miyazaki's work. "Vimeo user and animator Dono made this incredible video, which combines the beautiful piano work of Joe Hisaishi with extracted clips and characters from a plethora of Miyazaki films, from Spirited Away to My Neighbor Totoro to Porco Rosso, placing them into specially created 3D environments made by Dono."
    • Ventura County Reporter presented an outsider's view of cosplay at an Attack on Titan event. "One thing I realized at the premiere: Don’t mess with cosplayers or their parents. For instance, after a guard moved us media folks in with the fans, a mother and father advised their costumed children to push me out of the way. Then, a few seconds later, as the crowd swelled, the nearby blood-soaked cosplayer had a valiant defender complain to the crowd: 'My friend has social anxiety, like, really bad, and you need to give her some space.'...I guarantee that most of the fans didn’t even know the actors’ actual names. What was important was that the actors actually got to fully portray the characters that the fans had bonded with so closely."
    • Canada's The Globe and Mail discussed the future of Hannibal and its fanworks. "Whether or not another episode ever gets made, Hannibal is already a legacy show. Its disciples will still long be writing homoerotic fan fiction about the none-too-subtle love affair between Hannibal and Will, still be admiring the show’s layers of complexity, still be watching and rewatching until every facet is explored. With half a season left to securely enjoy, there’s still an opportunity to experience this legend while it lives, regardless of its fate."

    • Media outlets have been engaged in 'fandom tourism' articles for some time. Although there are fewer articles these days demonstrating surprise that fandom or fanworks exist, there are still a number of fandom profiles that either serve to stoke fandom nostalgia by pointing out activity surrounding a particular canon, or by demonstrating surprise that works exist in a specific fandom. Some recent examples were run in Jezebel, Flavorwire, and The New York Times.
    • While the spate of fandom tourism articles may have been inspired by San Diego Comic Con (SDCC), other articles involved SDCC directly. In a post at Belief Net, Nell Minow discussed her participation in the San Diego Comic Con panel Fandom: The Next Generation. "We all dream of sharing our passions with our children. But it is important to be careful about it. Everyone on the panel had a story about sharing the wrong movie — or the right movie too soon — with a child who got upset, and feeling that we had 'flunked parenting.' Young children will say what they think you want to hear and if it seems too important to you, they will tell you they like something when they really do not."
    • NPR talked with screenwriter Nicole Perlman, who discussed her excitement at seeing fans of her next project. "Perlman says she got very excited the first time she saw someone dressed up as her new project, Captain Marvel. 'She looked fantastic, so I completely accosted her and I kind of whispered it shyly, 'I'm writing the movie, take a picture with me please!'"
    • Polygon contrasted the approaches of Marvel and Warner Bros when fans promoted their new projects. "When trailers leaked from Comic Con, because studios show things to huge halls of people who are all carrying recording equipment and still think they can control the footage, the response from Warner Bros. was, to put it mildly, messed up." Writer Ben Kuchera concluded, "The reaction to the Suicide Squad footage was mostly positive; this was a great thing for Warner Bros. until they had to stomp in and make sure we knew they didn't approve of the way we were excited about their product and everyone needs to cut it out at once or they'll turn this movie right around and drive home."

    • Bustle's Emma Lord focused on the successful protest of a fanfiction 'comedy' act at WonderCon as part of discussing misconceptions about fanfic writers that she's tired of. "WonderCon recently had to pull Chris Gore’s 'Fan Fic Theater' panel, in which he was going to read out loud actual fan fiction and make fun of it for sport. Like many fellow authors, I took to Twitter to question what the panel was for, and within thirty seconds of my incredibly civil tweet asking what was up, I’d been blocked by Chris Gore himself...It didn’t take long for the convention to cancel the whole thing, because duh, WonderCon, you can’t make fun of the very audience for your event and expect them to not get defensive about it."
    • The Age reported on fans' reactions to the murder of a cosplayer in Australia with a display of numerous pieces of fan art. "[A] global group of cosplay fans...are expressing their grief through art. Masa Vukotic was a well-regarded member of the cosplay - or costume play - community...Many members of Melbourne's cosplay community have paid tribute to the teen with sketches and paintings of Masa dressed in her signature 'lolita' style. Some admitted they had never met Masa, but felt compelled to draw images of her or post photos of themselves wearing pink in her honour, her favourite colour."
    • Comic Book Resources wrote about a discussion on The Nightly Show about fandom and diversity. Marvel’s director of content and character development, Phil Jimenez, said "It feels strange to me that we would partition race, gender and nerd as if they were distinct things...All human beings are this combination of experiences and ideologies. […] Everybody’s get some nerd in them. But the idea that, somehow, being a nerd is separate from one’s religious or moral or political beliefs is strange to me. We all bring everything to our decision-making on a daily basis.”
    • reported on the success of various actor-led charity campaigns. "Padalecki’s campaign is the latest example of a burgeoning form of celebrity activism—one inextricably intertwined with social media and the nerdiest brand of superfandom. The new activism is kicked off by a star—in this case, the lead of a show that has a massive following on Tumblr—but powered by his admirers. (Incidentally, all examples involve male stars and their largely female fan bases.) The star, in turn, interacts with fans about the campaign, energizing the cause. Everyone feels good knowing they’re fighting for the same thing."

    Help out a researcher!

    This month we have received a request for research participation from Jean Drzyzgula at St. Mary's College of Maryland. As part of her thesis for an undergraduate degree, she is conducting research on *fandom and identity exploration* under the oversight of Dr. Iris Ford.

    The purpose of this research study is threefold: to understand the role participation in media fandoms has on the development of personal identities for young MOGAI (LGBT, Queer) people; to understand the extent to which participation in media fandoms has impacted participants’ identities; and to understand how these trends impact individuals participating in them.

    Note that survey participants must be at least 18 years of age. You can find the survey online; a consent agreement is included on the main page.

    Contact information is jadrzyzgula [at] smcm [dot] edu and Icford [at] smcm [dot] edu.

    The final paper and any future works will be shared with the community, and some limited portions of the data set collected may be available depending on if it is judged to not impact confidentiality (and with advisor approval).

    If you have requests for research participation, please view our policy for inclusion at our website.

    The OTW encourages anyone to submit an event that's not already listed, and to check out the calendar throughout the year!

  • OTW Fannews: Shark & Ranger Takedowns

    • Bloomberg BNA was one of many sites to write about a dispute over a Power Rangers fan film created by professional director Joseph Kahn. It was taken down from Vimeo in response to a takedown notice under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act from the owner of the Power Rangers franchise. Although it was later permitted to be rehosted, the case raised a number of interesting questions about fair use and who would have prevailed in court. A post on Entertainment Geekly also questioned the 'fan film' label and the intentions for the film.
    • Legal Professor Paul Heald speculated over 3-D shark designs being sold online after their appearance in Katy Perry's Superbowl performance. "The generally accepted position is that clothing is not protected by copyright. The copyright act contains a long list of what’s protected: literary works; musical works; plays; choreographic works; pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works; movies; sound recordings; and architectural works. Where would clothes fit? Well, the best you can do is sculptural works—they are sort of thin 3D sculpture. However, within that category, costume designers run into a problem called the “useful article” doctrine which disqualifies utilitarian sculptural works...It is generally accepted that clothing is unprotected [because] [i]ts design is intrinsic to its function."
    • Kimberly Anne Tan interviewed a bookseller on Urban Wire about fanfiction. Asked whether fan fiction should be recognised as literature, Anthony Koh Waugh replied, "Literature, to me, means written works of quality and artistic merit. There are fan fiction inspired by classic works and popular fiction and among them, some are better written than the others. I see fan fiction as a creative innovation and whether or not the genre should be recognised as literature will depend on the acceptance by the literary circle." However asked if he would sell fan fiction, he said "Of course! Fan fiction is a form of creative writing. Having said that, it also depends on how a particular book fits within our curation criteria."
    • Certainly it's increasingly easy to find, even in published form. Zaire's Books Alive featured discussion of a short story by Kiru Taye, a Nigerian-born novelist residing in the United Kingdom, noting that she had written an erotic fan fiction short story inspired by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel Americanah.

    Transformative Works and Cultures, issue number 18, “Performance and Performativity in Fandom,” guest edited by Lucy Bennett (Cardiff University) and Paul J. Booth (DePaul University), has been released. This special issue focuses on performance as it relates to fandom and comprises scholarly research articles, personal essays, interviews, and book reviews.

    As the editors write in their editorial, “We want to problematize this notion of fandom as a particular behavior and instead note the characteristics of being that permeate a fannish identity” (1.3). Accordingly, the contributions focus on fannish artworks and contributions as a form of performance, including an analysis of a Facebook group of fans of 19th-century British literature who post images of fictional constructions in the act of reading (Dawn Opel); a study of identity via fannish tattoos, with this sort of performance linked to sacred experience (Bethan Jones); and a discussion of Harry Potter slash disseminated within LiveJournal communities as a form of performance (Darlene Rose Hampton).

    Other articles address performativity through topics including language learners and Na’vi (Christine Schreyer), Doctor Who–themed weddings (Jessica Elizabeth Johnston), horror film audience reaction movie trailers (Alexander Swanson), and Sims fandom on Tumblr (Ruth A. Deller). Abigail De Kosnik links performance studies to new media studies, with a particular focus on fandom.

    Cosplay, an overt form of performativity, is directly addressed in several contributions: Ellen Kirkpatrick addresses cosplay and the superhero genre, Nicolle Lamerichs writes about cosplay music videos, and Shelby Fawn, in a personal essay, relates cosplay to her personal growth. Relatedly, Brendan Riley writes about zombie walks.

    Interviews are with Kurt Lancaster, an early scholar of performance in fan studies, and Joy DeLyria and Kris Hambrick, the cofounders of Hello Earth Productions, a theater company that produces outdoor (re)performances of classic Star Trek episodes.

    Transformative Works and Cultures, is part of the Organization for Transformative Works, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We exist entirely due to the generosity of our donors. If you would like our work to continue, please consider donating today.

These can be viewed by event-type, such as Academic Conferences, Fan Events and Fests, Legal Events, OTW Events, or Technology Events taking place around the world.

    • Subtitled "the slash slumber party," Escapade 2015 is celebrating 25 years of bringing slash fans together. The event has three panel tracks--fandom-specific, meta discussion, and tech--and panel discussion is "highly interactive." Attendance to Escapade (March 6-8 in Los Angeles, California, United States) is capped at 150. Read fan impressions of Escapade at Fanlore.
    • Cardboard*Con is "the world's most affordable science fiction / fantasy convention, and the first dedicated to the art of cardboard costuming." The event includes workshops and a costume contest. It's in Atlanta, Georgia, United States, on March 7.

    • Described as a "light-hearted academic conference," the Conference on Middle-Earth 2015 is a single-track conference dedicated to the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. It takes place March 28-29, in Albany, New York, United States.

    • The Pop Culture Association/American Culture Association Joint Annual Conference will include topics related to fandom and fan theory such as fanfiction, cosplay, fan pilgrimages, and more. Mat Fraser, actor (American Horror Story: Freak Show) and disability advocate, will be a featured speaker. The conference is April 1-4 in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.

    Calls for Papers this month come from:

    • Gendered Politics of Production: Girls and Women as Media Producers. Girls and women are producing more media than ever before, but they face misogynistic backlash in occurrences such as the recent "Gamergate." As part of a one-day symposium at Middlesex University, writers are encouraged to submit papers on themes including, but not limited to, historical analyses of girls and women as media producers; the production and circulation of feminist and activist media texts; gendered labour in media industries; and methodological approaches to studying production cultures. Abstracts of 250 words and a 50-word bio are due March 15; the symposium is June 16.

    • The Fan Studies Network 2015 Conference. The Fan Studies Network is issuing a call for papers and panels for this year's conference. Topics include but are not limited to activism and fandom, fandom and conflict, fan conventions, transculture and fandom, and more. The conference is also accepting expressions of interest in a short "speed-geeking" session, in which a speaker can chair a discussion of a brief idea for feedback. Submissions are due March 22; the conference is June 27-28 in Norwich, United Kingdom.

    • Edited Volume on Non-Professional Subtitling. Non-professional subtitling (sometimes known as "fansubbing") is one of the less-studied forms of user-generated content, arising in the 1980s with the growing popularity of anime in the United States. In this case, "non-professional" doesn't refer to the quality but instead to the type of content produced for distribution online and without profit. Both scholars and practitioners are welcome to contribute papers for a volume on the subject area. Topics can include but are not limited to the non-professional subtitling process, products, communities, and training. Abstracts are due March 31 with full articles due August 30; the volume's anticipated publication date is January 2016.

    Help out a researcher!

    This month we received two requests for research participation:

    The first request is from Arinda Sutantapreeda at Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. She is conducting an online survey on the users of fanfiction websites and the relationship between authors' gender, sexual orientation, and the preference for types of erotic stories.

    Her contact information is arinda [dot] sutantapreeda [at] gmail [dot] com.

    You can find the survey online; note that the latter part of the survey is ages 18 and up only, though all ages can participate in the first half. The research results will be shared with survey participants who provide their email addresses in the survey or who send their email address separately.

    The second request comes from Lidia Wisniewska at the Department of Psychology, Faculty of Educational Sciences, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Torun, Poland.

    She is working on a study to find out more about motivation to read (and write) fanfiction, and is asking authors and readers to take a survey. She has Ethical Board approval for this effort as part of a larger project.

    Her contact information is lidiaw [at] umk [dot] pl.

    Survey results are anonymous, and by participating in the survey you are giving consent to have your answers included in the research. Results will be published and available on request.

    Ania tarafından hazırlanan, cosplay, metinsel ve görsel sanatlar gibi çeşitli hayran eserlerine sahip afiş

    Zaman geldi! Bugün her türlü hayran eserinin kutlaması yapılan yıllık Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü’nün ilki. Aşağıda OTW’nin (Transformatif Eserler Derneği) sponsorloğunu yapan ya da OTW ile bağlantısı bulunan bazı şeylerin listesi var ancak bize yorumlar kısmında bildiğiniz başka olay ya da etkinlik varsa bildirirseniz biz de duyurabiliriz.

    1. #IFDrabble adlı bir kısa hayran eseri meydan okuması düzenliyoruz. Tabletinizi, dizüstü bilgisayarınızı ya da telefonunuzu alın ve hayran eserlerini kutlamak için en fazla 100 kelime yazın! (Neden 100 kelime?)

      En sevdiğiniz karakter—ya da en sevdiğiniz çift—neye hayranlık duyuyor?

      • Tony Stark gizlice Transformers hayran filmlerini izliyor—ve seviyor—mu?
      • Athos, Aramis/Porthos çiftini destekliyor mu?
      • Shinee üyeleri Final Fantasy karakterlerinin cosplayini yapıyorlar mı?

      Ancak meydan okumamız sadece yazmak üzerine değil — meydan okuma için bir drawble (resimli kısa hikaye), kısa bir video, sesli bir eser ya da farklı formatta bir eser de gönderebilirsiniz. Kutlamaların bir parçası olarak bugün gönderin.

      Bulmamıza ve paylaşmamıza yardım edin — tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth ya da neredeyseniz orada #IFDrabble etiketiyle paylaşın. (Ve eğer Archive of Our Own – AO3’te (Kendimize Ait Bir Arşiv) paylaşırsanız, Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü 2015 etiketiyle paylaşın.)

      Uygunsuz içerik kullanmazsanız biz de duyurabiliriz!

    2. Geribildirim Festivali: Hayran eserleri yaratan ve paylaşan herkes, onları beğenen insanların düşüncelerini duymayı sever. Geribildirim bıraktığınız eserlerin linkini yorum olarak bırakarak siz de katılın. Bu şekilde hayran eserlerinde sevdiğiniz şeyleri paylaşabilir ve başkalarını da geribildirim bırakmaya yönlendirebilirsiniz.
    3. 8 Şubat’ta yazarlar Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me ve Racheline Maltese ile birlikte"Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Hayran Eserleri Neden Kutlanmalı) üzerine canlı sohbet etkinliği yaptık. Bütün bu yazarlar hayran kurgusu yazarak başladı ve daha sonra eserleri basıldı—ve hala hayran eserleri içinde yer alıyorlar. Panelistler moderatör Francesca Coppa ile birlikte her türlü hayran eserinin değerini ve önemini tartıştı. Eğer kaçırdıysanız hala transkripti okuyabilirsiniz.
    4. Başkaları da Uluslararası Hayran Eserleri Günü hakkında konuşuyor. Bunun hakkında okuyup dinleyebileceğiniz bazı yerler:

    Ayrıca aşağıdaki hayran kutlamalarından haberdarız:

    Decembers förhandstitt på International Fanworks Day

    Dagen är kommen! Idag är den första årliga Internationella dagen för verk av fans, en dag då vi hyllar fans och alla deras verk. En lista följer nedan på lite olika saker som OTW (Organisationen för Transformativa Verk) sponsrar eller är kopplade till. Vi vill gärna att du lämnar en kommentar och berättar för oss om andra händelser eller saker du vet om inför dagen så att vi kan ge dig PR.

    1. Vi står värd för en utmaning för korta verk, #IFDrabble. Sätt på din platta, din laptop eller din smartphone och skriv upp till 100 ord som hyllar verk av fans! (Varför 100 ord?)

      Vad är din favoritkaraktär – eller ditt favoritpar – ett fan av?

      • Tittar Tony Stark i hemlighet på – och älskar – fanfilmer för Transformers?
      • Vill Athos para ihop Aramis och Porthos?
      • Klär medlemmarna i Shiree ut sig i cosplay som Final Fantasy-karaktärer?

      Men vår utmaning går inte bara ut på att skriva – du kan göra en drawble, en kort video, ljudfil eller något annat format till utmaningen istället. Bara lägg upp det idag som en del av hyllningen.

      Hjälp oss hitta den och dela den — tagga den med #IFDrabble på tumblr, Facebook, Dreamwidth, eller varhelst du har din fandomaktivitet. (Och om du lägger upp den på Archive of Our Own – AO3 (Vårt Eget Arkiv), tagga den med International Fanworks Day 2015.)

      Håll det någorlunda barntillåtet så kanske vi ger dig extra PR!

    2. Feedback-Fest: Alla som skapar och delar verk av fans älskar att höra av personerna som haft glädje av dem, så vi står värd för en Feedback-fest för att hylla verken vi älskar. Delta genom att lämna en kommentar här med en länk till verk som du har lämnat feedback på. På det sättet kan du dela det du älskar i verk av fans, samtidigt som du uppmundrar även andra att lämna feedback.
    3. 8 februari hade vi en chatt vid namn "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (“Varför verk av fans bör hyllas”), med författarna Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me, och Racheline Maltese. Alla dessa författare började sin karriär med att skriva fanfiction och har gått vidare till att publicera professionella verk – och de deltar fortfarande i fandom. Tillsammans med moderatorn Francesca Coppa diskuterade panelen hur värdefulla och viktiga alla sorters verk av fans är. Om du missade det kan du fortfarande läsa chattloggen.
