The new issue of the OTW’s fandom studies journal is out!

Look into it and read one of the many interesting texts. I started out with this paper on Censorship and Chinese slash fans. It presents an image of Chinese slash fandom after the Archive become inaccessible from China.

With AO3 blocked, mainland China’s slashers must choose to preserve Chinese customs on foreign platforms, to write in a foreign language, or to stay on domestic platforms but self-censor. 

Pang, Yudan. 2021. “Censorship and Chinese Slash Fans.” Transformative Works and Cultures, no. 36.
