The event will begin with a keynote from Professor Matt Hills (Aberystwyth University).
Featuring an international cohort of over 30 speakers, there will be themed panels on spaces and performance, transculture, gender, “classic” fandoms, textualities, and celebrity. There will also be a participatory “speed geeking” session, featuring a number of scholars sharing research in its early stages.
Registration is open until Monday November 18th 2013. Cost: £16.75/£37.75 Unwaged/Waged. You can register on the symposium website:http://www.uea.ac.uk/politics-international-media/events/fan-studies-network-symposium and talk about the event on Twitter using #FSN2013.
