2nd Global Conference: Fan Communities and Fandom

Friday 7th November – Sunday 10th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:
The words 'fan' and 'fandom' often conjure up images of screaming groupies, sports supporters adorned in the colours of 'their' team, die-hard messageboard participants and even stalkers who perpetrate actual violence against the object of their fannish desires. Whether viewed as a positive or negative cultural force, fandoms represent participatory communities that are so thoroughly inscribed within our social fabric, and integral to the way many individuals understand their identity, that it warrants holistic study in an interdisciplinary context.

TEXTUAL TRAILS - TRANSMISSIONS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014

Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.
