Video Now Online: Fandom & Race Panel

We're thrilled to share the video from the Fandom and Race Panel, as part of our 2021 Fandom and Piracy Mini-series!

Scholars of color discussed how fandom is racialized, how race is addressed (and not) in fannish spaces, how and where people of color explore and express their fannish interests, how fans of color are responding to the media industries’ attempts at diversifying casts and narratives, how fan studies and critical race theory currently intersect, and their visions for the future of fan studies.
