New section "Article" replacing "Theory/Praxis"


Beginning with No. 38, the sections Theory and Praxis will be replaced by a new section, Article. These often interdisciplinary essays with a conceptual focus and a theoretical frame offer expansive interventions in the field of fan studies or analyze the particular, applying a specific theory to a formation or artifact; explicating fan practice; performing a detailed reading of a specific text; or otherwise relating transformative phenomena to social, literary, technological, and/or historical frameworks. Articles undergo blind peer review. (6,000–8,000 words, plus a 100–250-word abstract)

The Symposium section will continue to be the home for shorter articles not requiring peer review, with a word count between 3,000 and 4,000 words. The Book Review section is unchanged.
