AAA Paper: Fan Fiction, Fan Autoethnography, and Everyday Life

AAA Paper: Fan Fiction, Fan Autoethnography, and Everyday Life

This week, we are introducing a first paper from the Geek Anthropology session Nick Mizer and myself put together for the 2013 American Anthropological Association annual meeting which took place in Chicago last November. You may remember Nick Mizer’s Connecting The Dots Towards A Geek Anthropology, introduction to this session, which he presented on TGA last March.

Connecting The Dots Towards a Geek Anthropology

Hey everyone, I’m Nick Mizer. Marie-Pierre has graciously allowed me to contribute to this blog and share my excitement for the topic of geek anthropology and our plans for an upcoming conference session on the topic.  I’m currently wrapping up my last semester of PhD coursework, and will be writing my dissertation on Dungeons & Dragons. I’ll also be presenting on geek culture at next week’s Popular Culture Association conference in DC, so if any readers of the blog will also be there, I’d love to meet!
