Hello, fandebate, my name is Cassie, and  I'm so glad that I've joined in your community. What I'm looking for is a Chicago entertainment journalist who can interview me with my three topics that have a lot to do with soap opera stars and music. Someone I can totally trust .....someone who knows ALL the studio locations of ALL soaps-daytime, primetime, Web-so that I can come up with a record label  that's in the same state, so that it can partner up with a soap, or more, and that any multitalented soap opera actress AND actor can sign a record deal, so she AND he can be heard on the radio, sell millions of records, and even shoot a music video. Also, I'm looking for that someone who can make phone calls to places that are NOT in Chicago, while I can sporadically make phone calls to places that are. Also, I'm looking for someone who's an event planner AND knows my favorite singers' managers/spokespeople, because I want most of them to become musical guests for my #1 favorite soap, "All My Children", so that any legacy character, or new one, can sing a special duet with them, while they hit the stage at the Chandler Media that's at the Miranda Center. And, yes, they ARE icons. If you know that person, great, and I can e-mail to her/him about my life, and what my three topics are. If not, then, I'll post the same thing on other communities on this website, until someone responds to it. Speaking of that, please, feel free to comment under my post, even if you have any questions about it. Thank you, and have an awesome rest of the weekend. My e-mail address is, cassiehicks89@yahoo.com, if you want to e-mail me, as well. God bless.

Last summer's Gender and Fan Studies debate not only raiseda number of issues that all of us are still discussing but also connected a number of scholars for the first time. In its wake, Bob Rehak suggested a follow-up panel to make use of many of these contacts, revisiting the initial questions and all that had come since. The workshop "Gendered Fan Labor in New Media and Old" will be held April 25th at Console-ing Passions, and the five presenters decided to share their brief papers here with one another, potential conference goers, and everyone at fandebate.

I'm sorry to interrupt, but I have realized that some of the participants in the discussion may not have gotten Henry's request for summary paragraphs to post as a "summing up" of our experiences.  I did not get the email; at least one other person I know did not either.  I thought the fastest move might be to post here (I'll also email and ask Henry to post on his blog).

If it comes to that, I'd like to see summing up posts from people who read and participated, not just the Official Participants, and maybe that can happen here if not in Henry's blog.

I think we need to get the summing up paragraphs to him by this weekend.

This community is set up as a mirror to the discussion on gender and fan studies going on at Henry Jenkins's blog. Every week, a new conversation between two acafan scholars will be posted, often revolving around a specific focus. We want as many voices as possible to participate in these conversations, and we'd also like the expanding conversation to bridge the blogosphere, so we've decided to set up this space on livejournal. We'll be posting the conversations here as well as at Henry's blog; feel free to comment in either or both spaces.


For commenters who do not have a LiveJournal account, there are three options:

(1) You can sign up for a free account HERE. The FAQ; should answer additional questions. [Alternatively, HERE's a step-by-step introduction to LiveJournal.]

(2) You can post anonymously. Anonymous posting will clearly not be disabled in this discussion journal. Please sign your name, however, so that multiple anonymous users may not get mistaken for one another.

(3) You can use Open ID. In fact, you might already have an OpenID account. If you use TypePad or Moveable Type, your open ID is profile.typekey.com/username; if you use AOL or AIM, your OpenID is openid.aol.com/screenname; if you use blogging software such as GreatestJournal etc., your OpenID is username.greatestjournal.com. (Likewise, Wordpress.com accounts would be username.wordpress.com)
