The Year's Work: Studies in Fan Culture and Cultural Theory

The Year's Work is a book series dedicated to the theory, analysis, and interpretation of recent and contemporary fan cultural phenomena. Putting the necessary emphasis on the particular rather than the general, each volume will be dedicated to exploring the idiosyncrasies of a specific fan culture and the aesthetic objects and cult artifacts that define it. This means research that pays attention and ultimately honors the complexities of fan cultures--not just what they mean, but how they work--how they matter--in different contexts and environments. Selected studies will work through issues of production as well as consumption, ultimately addressing how fan responses and activity puts pressure on academic discourse and methodology. Inquiries and submissions may be sent to series editors Edward P. Comentale at ecomenta@indiana.edu, or Aaron Jaffe at ajaffe@fsu.edu.
