The fans of cultural theory
McKee, Alan (2007) The fans of cultural theory. In Gray, Jonathan, Sandvoss, Cornel, & Harrington, C. Lee (Eds.) Fandom : identities and communities in a mediated world. New York University Press, New York, pp. 88-97.
Fandom brings together leading scholars to examine fans, their practices, and their favorite texts. This unparalleled selection of original essays examines instances across the spectrum of modern cultural consumption from Karl Marx to Paris Hilton, Buffy the Vampire Slayer to backyard wrestling, Bach fugues to Bollywood cinema and nineteenth-century concert halls to computer gaming. Contributors examine fans of high cultural texts and genres, the spaces of fandom, fandom around the globe, the impact of new technologies on fandom, and the legal and historical contexts of fan activity. Fandom is key to understanding modern life in our increasingly mediated and globalized world.
