Lynne Edwards and Katy Stevens, Co-Editors of Watcher Junior: The
Undergraduate Journal of Buffy Studies, are pleased to announce that the
first issue of Watcher Junior is now online at www.watcherjunior.tv.

Watcher Junior provides a forum for showcasing excellence in
undergraduate
Buffy scholarship. As colleges and universities continue to introduce
and to
support courses in film and media studies in general, and Buffy
Studies in
particular, there continues to be a growing body of Buffy scholarship
at the
undergraduate and graduate levels of study. Slayage: The Online
International Journal of Buffy Studies (www.slayage.tv) provides an
important forum for publishing graduate and professional scholarship in
Buffy Studies; as a fully refereed journal, Watcher Junior is
committed to
doing the same for undergraduate work.

This exciting first issue features essays exploring the unique narrative
conventions of Buffy, the relationship between the series and its fan
community, and the philosophical and psychoanalytical foundations of
major
Buffy characters.
