Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

Over the past five years, more and more English language transformative fandoms have gravitated to the social networking site Tumblr, moving from online communities such as LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Yahoo! Groups. Thus many fan communities have shifted organization structures to adapt to Tumblr’s multiple points of entry and seemingly anti-hierarchical framework. Some fans describe Tumblr as a fandom free-for-all without clear rules for engagement. Others describe this uncertain multiplicity as one of the platform’s strengths. Still others have pointed to Tumblr's comparatively more visual interface as enabling greater global participation in heretofore monolingual fandom spaces.

CFP: Consumer Identities and Digital Culture Symposium

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: December 20, 2016

The Division of Mass Communication at St. John’s University is now accepting submissions for paper presentations at an upcoming one-day symposium, Consumer Identities and Digital Culture. We seek transdisciplinary interpretations and critical analyses of consumption and consumer identity, broadly defined across emerging media and digital landscapes. This symposium is the first in a planned series of events interrogating various aspects of consumer identity, using fans as one exemplar and catalyst for discussion. Panelists will also be invited to participate in the development of an edited volume.
