Event Details

What is your first thought when you hear the word “fan” – a die-hard supporter of a pop-culture media product? A religious zealot? An avid enthusiast of a favourite sports team? Whether viewed as having positive or negative implications, concepts of fans and fandom are thoroughly embedded in society. Being a vital aspect of the self-identity of many individuals, fandom warrants closer study. We are pleased to launch the Global Inclusive Interdisciplinary Research Project on Fans and Fandom. Over the course of an ongoing series of events, this cross context research  project will facilitate deeper engagements involving participants from across disciplinary, professional, practitioner and other backgrounds in exploring the nature, meaning and implications of fandom as it impacts individuals, fan communities and the societies in which they operate.
