About the Journal
Journal of Fandom Studies is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, first published by Intellect in 2012. The multi-disciplinary nature of fan studies makes the development of a community of scholars sometimes difficult to achieve. Journal of Fandom Studies seeks to offer scholars a dedicated publication that promotes current scholarship in the fields of fan and audience studies across a variety of media. We focus on the critical exploration, within a wide range of disciplines and fan cultures, of issues surrounding production and consumption of popular media (including film, music, television, sports and gaming). Journal of Fandom Studies aims to address key issues, while also fostering new areas of enquiry that take us beyond the bounds of current scholarship.
