Fandom and Fan Studies
The University of Waterloo’s Games Institute as well as the IMMERSe Research Network are proud to host a MetaFandom Unconference on Thursday, September 18th and Friday the 19th. Unconferences are gatherings of interested scholars and experts, where they have informed conversations on a particular topic fandom and fan studies, in this case!
