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).

Lots of shiny new things this week. Special thanks to Kevin Veale for pointing us to a public version of his article on Homestuck-we’ve added it again below, with the open access works this time.

If we missed anything or made a mistake, submit a correction and we’ll fix it in next week’s edition. Happy reading!
