Intellect is excited to be partnering with the Fan Studies Network for their 2020 North America Virtual Conference.

Intellect is a fiercely independent academic publisher for scholars and practitioners teaching and researching in the arts, media and creative industries.
Intellect’s main fan studies journal is the Journal of Fandom Studies. The Journal of Fandom Studies seeks to offer scholars a dedicated, peer-reviewed publication that promotes current scholarship into the fields of fan and audience studies across a variety of media. We focus on critical exploration, within a wide range of disciplines and fan cultures, of issues surrounding production and consumption of popular media (including film, music, television, sports and gaming).
Intellect also has its Fan Phenomena book series which aims to address cult/fan culture within a specified gaze. Topics have ranged from mythic actors like Marilyn Monroe to the long-lasting television series Buffy The Vampire Slayer to film juggernauts like James Bond and Star Wars. The most recent book in the series is Fan Phenomena: Harry Potter and it is a must read for Potterheads interested in Harry Potter adaptations, conventions, gaming, fanfiction and more.
