Today's fans are actively engaging with television through social media. Drawing on the diverse expertise of a variety of researchers, Television, Social Media, and Fan Culture explores this engagement from multiple vantage points, and extends and develops new avenues in fan and media studies research. Sure to spark debate, this volume speaks to the importance of fan studies as a discipline and the crucial role that social media plays in this development. -- Paul Booth, DePaul University
This engaging collection lies at the forefront of an emerging and essential cultural and technological dialogue. The trio of editors have assembled an impressive critical chorus, whose case studies chronicle and contextualize the complex triangulation of activity and interactivity between the evolving broadcast and cable programming environment, passionate fan communities, and the revolutionary ripples of an array of New Media platforms. The perspectives in the twenty essays are fresh and forward-looking and the views vast and varied. No network, link, site, genre, or fan base is overlooked. This impressive volume is trending, streaming, and tuned-in to the times. #Bigfan. -- George Plasketes, Auburn University
