We have entered an historical moment in which political communication is filled with fandom. Grassroots fan communities mobilize to influence elections. Political candidates perform fandom on the campaign trail. And of course, rallies on both sides of the aisle are filled with bursts of fannish excitement. Examples range from the Princess Leia “We are the resistance” posters used during the 2017 Women’s March to Elizabeth Warren’s Harry Potter references to the strong attachment Trump fans felt for their candidate. Still, the affective nature of fandom is often treated as being at odds with the rational discourse of the political sphere, and the relationship between fandom and politics is often dismissed or ignored.

A Call for Papers: The Korean Television Reader


Despite the large interest in Korean television among academics and fans, studies of Korean television content in Anglo-speaking countries have seen limited publication. This is a call for papers related to Korean television for a co-edited anthology, which combines approaches to television from Media and Area studies perspectives. The editors are interested in an interdisciplinary discussion of television programs that address the wide range of novel approaches to interrelated media spheres.

deadline for submissions:

As anyone who has watched Eurovision can attest, the music festival often becomes a spectacle of nationalisms. It is an international space onto which all participating nations proclaim a distinct and valuable musical and artistic contribution to the world stage. Eurovision is not the only media event that allows for such nationalist performances, however. This panel will focus on the performativity of nationalism in Eastern European media events, film, and literature, among other artistic performances. Focusing on these texts, this panel aims to create dialogue between performances and the mediums of their development.
