Description:

Using a variety of education sources including fan sub-cultures expert Henry Jenkins, I explore the realm of online fanfiction and how it relates to feminine discourse and reading practices.
I argue thathat Online fanfiction archives are a mass global platform for the institutionalization of feminine reading practices. A created sphere where women can examine, critique, debate, and reshape their relationships to the mass media through common popular texts.
