The Journal of Fandom Studies
ISSN: 20466692 | Online ISSN: 20466706
Principal Editor: Katherine Larsen, The George Washington University
Associate Editor: John Walliss, Liverpool Hope University

Aims & Scope
The multi-disciplinary nature of fan studies makes the development of a community of scholars sometimes difficult to achieve. The Journal of Fandom Studies seeks to offer scholars a dedicated publication that promotes current scholarship into 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), The journal aims to address key issues in fans studies itself, while also fostering new areas of enquiry that take us beyond the bounds of current scholarship.
