Refractory: A Journal of Entertainment Media

Special Themed Edition for 2004: Space and Fandom

Apologies for cross-postings.

This issue of Refractory explores the spatial dynamics of fandom,
conceived broadly to encompass works addressing issues of internet
culture, globalization, travel, conventions, private/public sphere,
nationality, and spatial metaphors within fandom, including fanfiction.
Articles are sought that examine fandom on macro and micro levels. As a
journal of entertainment media, a range of fan texts across various media
are welcomed, as well as both contemporary and historical works. Papers
are sought that take new approaches to texts that have a history of fan
scholarship, but also less-known or less-studied texts that might bring a
new perspective to fan studies. The aim of the special edition is to bring
together articles examining a wide range of texts. Please submit completed
articles of 3,000-7,000 words to the guest editor Djoymi Baker
( electronically as a rich text format document
(hard copies will not be returned) by March 31, 2004. For style details,
please consult the journal website. Refractory is a fully refereed
journal. All submissions will be anonymously peer reviewed before
