Abstract

As we noted in the introduction of this collection, fan studies is a field of study undergoing rapid development and diversification. This collection has, in both form and content, endeavored to survey some canonical topics within fan studies (identity, technologies and practices, and industry), while remaining attentive to underdeveloped sectors of the field (methods, race, and transcultural fandom). Similarly, in this conclusive conversation, Melissa A. Click and Suzanne Scott (the collection’s co-editors) are joined by media scholars Jonathan Gray and Jason Mittell to revisit core concerns and explore new directions for the field.
