MIT 3404F-001 (Fall 2018)   Special Topics in MIT: Fan Cultures

Instructor: Z. Bronson

Course Description
This course provides an in-depth study of fan cultures, with a focus on the practices, behaviours, and
activities of contemporary fandom. In particular, this course examines the ways that fans struggle over the
meanings of texts, by actively resisting, rewriting, and remixing media products in their own desired ways. At
the same time, it explores how the contemporary media industries have responded to fan cultures by
integrating and commodifying fan labour into its practices.
