Thanks to two decades of digital expansion, you can now find fandoms pretty much everywhere across the internet. And you can find a fandom for just about anything.
We invited Allison Broesder to join us to discuss her ongoing work on foundational fandoms, tracing certain kinds of fanfic as far back as the 1300s. Of course, Sherlock Holmes plays a central role in how we think about modern fandom. And Allison's work at the graduate level explores some of that.
