Intellect is excited to be partnering with the Fan Studies Network for their 2021 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).

Other fan studies journals of interest may include: Horror Studies, European Journal of American Culture, Journal of European Popular Culture, Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture, East Asian Journal of Popular Culture, Virtual Creativity, Journal of Gaming & Virtual Worlds, Journal of Science & Popular Culture, and Studies in Comics. Our full list of journals can be found here.

Intellect has a strong fan studies back-catalogue with titles including A Cultural History of the Disneyland Theme Parks: Middle Class Kingdoms, Superman: The Movie: The 40th Anniversary Interviews and Planet Cosplay: Costume Play, Identity and Global Fandom

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.
