Special Issue TWC CFP: Tumblr and Fandom (05/01/17; 06/15/17

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.
