|New blog, first post
||[Jul. 7th, 2010|09:08 pm]
Hey, I just (finally!) made my first post to Symposium blog, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works' Transformative Works and Cultures journal. My co-blogger there is Dana Sterling, who's posted some good stuff about TWC's Supernatural-themed issue and the John Scalzi/Wil Wheaton fan fiction contest.
In my post, I look at fan cultures around MTV's The Hills, and suggest a mode of 'parasocial fandom' to complement what obsession_inc and damned_colonial have described as transformational fandom and affirmational fandom.
Okay, that makes my post sound pretty boring -- and it isn't, really! Probably? Anyways, check it out, and feel free to comment there if so moved.
