Transformative Works and Cultures has released No. 30.
This huge (12 full-length essays, five Symposium essays, and two book reviews) issue is our general issue, which comes out every September. Why so large? No print component; and TWC does not hold a backlog. Topics include the study of music in fan vids; slash; eighteenth-century prophecy; soap opera fans; Disflix; and fandom in China. We have an essay about Ginny Weasley, a close reading of a 2017 fan fic by chainofclover, and several essays on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
