Transformative Works and Cultures Issue 8 has just been published! I haven't yet had a chance to read any of it, but I am sure it is awesome - the titles in the email look intriguing. I'll update this post with reviews once I've read some, hopefully this evening. I'd like to encourage people to look at the abstracts and symposium articles for interesting fannish meta even if you're not an academic and don't want to read the full thing.

What did you think - which are the articles you found most interesting?

Edit: I've just read the editorial on race. The first few paragraphs were hard to read as a non-academic, style-wise, but then I got into it and there's some great content there. Now I want to watch The Real Girls' Guide to Everything Else.

I love TWC, though it can be hard to get back into the language when you don't use it every day! I'm fine once I've read the first article.

The article on Paris/Kim/Torres was great and has me reading old, old stories from when I was a wee baby fan. I was interested that the author talked about how clearly the stories diverged. Stories that followed a traditional domesticity would break up the threesome, those that didn't stayed together. Fans do very much critique their canon with fan fiction.

I don't remember that happening, probably because I didn't like stories where they broke up and didn't bother thinking any more about them.
