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.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: Abstracts due February 13, 2017.

Joss Whedon’s short-lived series Firefly developed a fierce following while it aired from 2002 to 2003. After its cancellation, fans cried foul and demanded more, which eventually led to the 2005 feature film follow-up Serenity, along with several tie-in comic books. The series and film were celebrated for their mixing of science fiction and western iconography, dystopic settings, progressive gender representations, underdog storylines, and clever and fast-paced dialogue.

One of the defining themes of the CW’s Supernatural is its interest in fiction and storytelling. The longest running genre series on American television, it has, throughout its twelve seasons, broken the fourth wall in a way that no other TV show likely has. From making Supernatural itself (and its fandom) exist within the world of the narrative to the unique relationship between canon and fanon, fans and creators, Supernatural is a groundbreaking look at the way narratives are created, told, and retold. Yet most scholarship dedicated to Supernatural has omitted thoroughly exploring this crucial aspect of the series.
