After our involuntary podcasting hiatus, we’re back with a vengeance. Gabby has taken over the podcast, because in this episode we talk about a topic I know nothing about — One Direction fandom. Specifically: Larry Stylinson. We also talk about fanfic, fan spaces, K-Pop, and Filipino love teams.
If you can read Tagalog, you can check out Anne’s academic paper on Fandom, Fangirling and Stan Culture.
A quick update on what Anne is up to. In case you missed Jodi’s announcement, she and Claire Parnell were awarded an RWA grant to study the #romanceclass community in the Philippines, and they’ll be working with Anne on this project. Jodi and Claire have also been on the podcast before, and you can check out their interviews in episodes 51 and 20.
And finally, it’s a little late now, but our podcast turned 3 this year. We’re super grateful for supporting us with your comments, tweets, emails and subscribes!
