Welcome!

Welcome to Fan Video: Theory & Practice. In this course, we will explore the range of fan video forms, aesthetics, cultures, and histories. We will study the visual and rhetorical logics of fan video, and the legal and political questions bound up in fan video making histories and cultures. We will consider the possibilities of fan video as a critical practice. We will learn by engaging with scholarship on fan video as well as with the perspectives of fan video practitioners, and by making our own fan videos in a range of genres and aesthetic frameworks, and reflecting on our processes of creation.
