This panel seeks to look at the increased role of the fandom in pop culture today. More and more writers admit to reading message boards, websites, and fan fiction about their work, and making creative choices following this engagement. How have these communities raised the level of discourse regarding their topic of choice, or in some cases possibly have trivialized academic engagement? Other theories relating to this topic are welcome. 200 words abstracts should be sent to Lindsay Bryde at Lindsay.Bryde@gmail.com
