We Con, Therefor We Are: Convergence Theory and Anime Fandom Culture
Hosted by Charles Dunbar
Walking the halls of any anime con yield a good deal of non-anime presence: from Homestucks to Bronies, to Whoovians, and even more. What defines convention culture has transformed, and with it ideas of practice, motivation, and community participation. This discussion aims to look at how convention culture, and by extension fandom practice, has changed in the past decade, as new modes of interaction have begun to replace former models. Audience participation and observation is welcome.
