This course surveys current internet fan culture, analyzing fanart, fan fiction, fan videos, cosplay, and online fan spaces in the context of gender studies, critical theory, queer theory, sociology, and other critical discourses. Questions this course will pose include; what is a fanwork? Why do people create fanworks? What is a fan? What is a fanwork's relationship with its text of origin? Are fanworks queer art? Are fanworks anti-capitalist art? Is creating a fanwork a political act? What is the relationship between fanworks and children's literature? How do fanworks represent and discuss the body?
