We’re trying out a new kind of post: a weekly list of new/recent fan studies research that’s just been added to the Fan Studies Bibliography. Works are divided into things that are open access (=immediately readable for anyone) and not open access (=behind a paywall or not yet public). 

If we missed anything or made a mistake, submit a correction and we’ll fix it in next week’s edition. Comments and suggestions about this new posting format are also very welcome. Happy reading!
