“We often think of fandom as something new and something in the hands of the audience, but my research revealed a long history of how businesses and publishers like Titbits played important roles in devising, ‘activating,’ and controlling seemingly amateur fan spaces. Perhaps this will make us think more deeply about the supposed divisions between author and fan, between corporation and individual, and between corporately controlled spaces and fan controlled spaces.”

Ann McClellan writes about Sherlock Holmes fandom in the latest issue of Transformative Works & Cultures, and tells us how fandom history was shaped. https://goo.gl/jZLjB5
