A Hollywood of Our Own

Plugging Women Do Genre in Film and Television (2017), just out and edited by Mary Harrod and Katarzyna Paszkiewicz, in which I have an essay:  “A Hollywood of Our Own: Media Fandom as Female Artworld,” which discusses various MCU fanworks:  Lim’s vid “Marvel,”  dropdeaddream’s fanfiction story, “Keeping up With the Kardashians,” and Shiro’s Ikea art project.

Also, let me plug Tracy Walker’s recent talk #GeekGirls in the Scholars and Storytelling series at Duke University, which says some very nice things about me and makes some very smart anthropological/performance studies moves to distinguish and define various fan cultures.
