Fans have been responding to literary works since the days of Homer’s Odyssey and Euripedes’ Medea. More recently, a number of science fiction, fantasy, media, and game works have found devoted fan followings. The advent of the Internet has brought these groups from relatively limited, face-to-face enterprises to easily accessible global communities, within which fan texts proliferate and are widely read and even more widely commented upon. New interactions between readers and writers of fan texts are possible in these new virtual communities. From Star Trek to Harry Potter, the essays in this volume explore the world of fan fiction—its purposes, how it is created, how the fan experiences it. Grouped by subject matter, essays cover topics such as genre intersection, sexual relationships between characters, character construction through narrative, and the role of the beta reader in online communities. The work also discusses the terminology used by creators of fan artifacts and comments on the effects of technological advancements on fan communities.

Popkultur ist allgegenwärtig: Film und Musik sind globale Träger kapitaler Inhalte wie Liebe, Tod, Wahrheit, Vertrauen, Stil, Geschmack und Gemeinschaft. Anders als die Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften haben die Textwissenschaften jedoch bisher vergleichsweise verhalten auf die Herausforderungen des Phänomens reagiert. Der Fokus dieses Bandes liegt daher auf Kommunikations- und Interaktionsstrategien des Populären sowie auf historischen Verschiebungen im weiteren Rahmen der Literatur- und Kulturgeschichte. In enger Auseinandersetzung mit ihren Gegenständen setzen die Beiträger_innen neue Impulse für die interdisziplinäre Theoriebildung.

Dass die Welt von Zauberlehrling Harry Potter magisch, bunt, schillernd und manchmal gefährlich oder unberechenbar ist, weiß wohl jeder - aber ist sie auch queer? Ist Harry Potter etwa schwul? Vera Cuntz-Leng beleuchtet die Harry Potter-Saga mit besonderem Fokus auf den acht Blockbuster-Verfilmungen sowohl aus queertheoretischer Sicht als auch aus Perspektive der im Internet millionenfach verbreiteten homoerotischen Fanliteratur zur Fantasyreihe. Beide Blickwinkel - Wissenschaft und Fandom - kommen in einen fruchtbaren Dialog miteinander, der auch die queeren Qualitäten und Potenziale des Fantasygenres insgesamt aufzeigt.

An essential introduction to a rapidly growing field of study, The Fan Fiction Studies Reader gathers in one place the key foundational texts of the fan studies corpus, with a focus on fan fiction. Collected here are important texts by scholars whose groundbreaking work established the field and outlined some of its enduring questions. Editors Karen Hellekson and Kristina Busse provide cogent introductions that place each piece in its historical and intellectual context, mapping the historical development of fan studies and suggesting its future trajectories. Organized into four thematic sections, the essays address fan-created works as literary artifacts; the relationship between fandom, identity, and feminism; fandom and affect; and the role of creativity and performance in fan activities. Considered as literary artifacts, fan works pose important questions about the nature of authorship, the meaning of “originality,” and modes of transmission. Sociologically, fan fiction is and long has been a mostly female enterprise, from the fanzines of the 1960s to online forums today, and this fact has shaped its themes and its standing among fans. The questions of how and why people become fans, and what the difference is between liking something and being a fan of it, have also drawn considerable scholarly attention, as has the question of how fans perform their fannish identities for diverse audiences. Thanks to the overlap between fan studies and other disciplines related to popular and cultural studies—including social, digital, and transmedia studies—an increasing number of scholars are turning to fan studies to engage their students. Fan fiction is the most extensively explored aspect of fan works and fan engagement, and so studies of it can often serve as a basis for addressing other aspects of fandom. These classic essays introduce the field’s key questions and some of its major figures. Those new to the field or in search of context for their own research will find this reader an invaluable resource.

Gathering some of Kristina Busse’s essential essays on fan fiction together with new work, Framing Fan Fiction argues that understanding media fandom requires combining literary theory with cultural studies because fan artifacts are both artistic works and cultural documents. Drawing examples from a multitude of fan communities and texts, Busse frames fan fiction in three key ways: as individual and collective erotic engagement; as a shared interpretive practice in which tropes constitute shared creative markers and illustrate the complexity of fan creations; and as a point of contention around which community conflicts over ethics play out. Moving between close readings of individual texts and fannish tropes on the one hand, and the highly intertextual embeddedness of these communal creations on the other, the book demonstrates that fan fiction is simultaneously a literary and a social practice. Framing Fan Fiction deploys personal history and the interpretations of specific stories to contextualize fan fiction culture and its particular forms of intertextuality and performativity. In doing so, it highlights the way fans use fan fiction’s reimagining of the source material to explore issues of identities and peformativities, gender and sexualities, within a community of like-minded people. In contrast to the celebration of originality in many other areas of artistic endeavor, fan fiction celebrates repetition, especially the collective creation and circulation of tropes. An essential resource for scholars, Framing Fan Fiction is also an ideal starting point for those new to the study of fan fiction and its communities of writers.

»Das ›1984‹ fürs Internetzeitalter« Zeit online - jetzt als E-Book für nur 9,99€ Leben in der schönen neuen Welt des total transparenten Internets: Mit Der Circle hat Dave Eggers einen hellsichtigen, hochspannenden Roman über die Abgründe des gegenwärtigen Vernetzungswahns geschrieben. Ein beklemmender Pageturner, der weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Huxleys Schöne neue Welt reloaded: Die 24-jährige Mae Holland ist überglücklich. Sie hat einen Job ergattert in der hippsten Firma der Welt, beim »Circle«, einem freundlichen Internetkonzern mit Sitz in Kalifornien, der die Geschäftsfelder von Google, Apple, Facebook und Twitter geschluckt hat, indem er alle Kunden mit einer einzigen Internetidentität ausstattet, über die einfach alles abgewickelt werden kann. Mit dem Wegfall der Anonymität im Netz – so ein Ziel der »drei Weisen«, die den Konzern leiten – wird es keinen Schmutz mehr geben im Internet und auch keine Kriminalität. Mae stürzt sich voller Begeisterung in diese schöne neue Welt mit ihren lichtdurchfluteten Büros und High-Class-Restaurants, wo Sterneköche kostenlose Mahlzeiten für die Mitarbeiter kreieren, wo internationale Popstars Gratis-Konzerte geben und fast jeden Abend coole Partys gefeiert werden. Sie wird zur Vorzeigemitarbeiterin und treibt den Wahn, alles müsse transparent sein, auf die Spitze. Doch eine Begegnung mit einem mysteriösen Kollegen ändert alles ...Mit seinem neuen Roman Der Circle hat Dave Eggers ein packendes Buch über eine bestürzend nahe Zukunft geschrieben, einen Thriller, der uns ganz neu über die Bedeutung von Privatsphäre, Demokratie und Öffentlichkeit nachdenken und den Wunsch aufkommen lässt, die Welt und das Netz mögen uns bitte manchmal vergessen. »Ein brandaktueller Roman über unsere Gegenwart – wunderbar« FAZ »Eggers futuristischer Silicon-Valley-Horror ist kein Orwell’sches 2084, sondern eine der Wirklichkeit nur wenig vorauseilende, im Grunde ziemlich realistisch anmutende Vision.« NZZ
