This week launches a conversation at Henry Jenkins’ blog entitled “Acafandom and Beyond” in which a wide, interdisciplinary range of scholars will talk about the stakes and issues involved in doing work that complicates traditional academic notions of objectivity through affect or situated knowledege–many of the issues that I had on my mind for my last post here, following our Acafan workshop at SCMS.
The first week of the Acafandom and Beyond project consists of a conversation between myself, Sam Ford, and Anne Kustritz. The first part is up now and is also mirrored at Dreamwidth. Please join in the conversation, either at the blog or at dreamwidth! We would love to see the conversation spread and grow beyond the initial participants.
