So, What’s Your Fandom?: Participatory Culture in the Digital Age
February 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Presented by Lorena O’English, from WSU Libraries. After reading Ready Player One, it’s very clear that author and screenwriter Ernest Cline is a fan of 1980s video games, music, and popular culture. But what does it mean to be a fan? Some of his early screenplays were, in fact, fan fiction. O’English will talk about aspects of fan culture and fanfiction, from their beginnings to the present. Verification of attendance available. (Grey Key event)
