1 fanfiktion FAN CULTUREFAN FICTION AND THE SOCIAL MEDIA BESTSELLER 3rd Graduate Conference in Culture Studies "Report from the Pop Line: On the Life and Afterlife of Popular" 3. December, 2012 at the Portuguese Catholic University, Lisbon.

2 fanfiktion Danish fans of Twilight This paper brings along Danish fan fiction writers and places them in a literary and cultural context. And discusses whether fan fiction is relevant in the class room or not by Anne Petersen, VIA University College Denmark

3 Contents a. On the book b. Typology Shown by examples c. Danish reception d. Educational issues

4 ON THE BOOK about Danish fans

5 fanfiktion Fan culture and fan fiction Fan cultures and history Identity and the aesthetics of the everyday life Vampires and love The social media bestseller Fan fiction and education Based on interviews

6 TYPOLOGY

7 Typology The Reader The Twilighter The Collector The Emo The Fan writer The Student The Anti-fan

8 Example 1 The Twilighter and collector FAN CULTURE expands the scene around a book series by gaming, enacting, doing, decorating, being creative.

9 fanfiktion IN THE GIRL'S OWN ROOM Aesthetics of the everyday life or How to show who you are

10 fanfiktion The Twilighter is not a princess

11 fanfiktion She shows a lot of creativity A varied creativity is displayed through playing and interior decoration, and to some extent crafting. Since The Harry Potter series, the fan culture continued to evolve as a culture among children and young adults, especially through Stephenie Meyer s Twilight Saga.

12 fanfiktion Christine's room

13 fanfiktion Collecting

14 fanfiktion Adoring audience

15 fanfiktion Alice Cullen hair

16 Tableau Vivant

17 Portrait

18 Example 2 The Writer FAN FICTION expands the scene around a book series... by using it in creative writing.

19 fanfiktion BEING ONE OF THE NEW LITERARY. THE WRITER The hypotext of fan fiction is pop culture The writer

20 fanfiktion Emo style the emo crush on musicians wear black goth? hard to define struggles with defining herself.

21 fanfiktion A danish fan fiction writer Birgitte Mary Sue Schmidt. A danish fan fiction writer I m a slasher. I make friends, enemies and complete strangers fall in love. I consider this as a gift! <3 On Fanfiction.net: TheUnintendedMuse

22 fanfiktion A writer on haters and spoofs Within the fan culture there are so many haters writing parodies. There are almost more parodies about 'stuff I hate' than people writing about things they like. As a fan you shouldn't take it as personal as some people do. It's important to have a critical perspective. But I also find it ridiculous when people are hating so badly and making other peoples' lives miserable. It's a little too much that people on those forums can maintain those discussions for so long. But there is something about the ironic style that is cool. When it's not outright hate, it's actually fun you know, and sometimes it's almost the best kind of fan fiction."

23 fanfiktion Emmet and Edward It wasn t like I didn t know it was a bad thing. Hell, I could feel how bad it was! But watching the expression on Edward s face when he read Emmet s thoughts well, that just about made my day. Alright, so I m a bad person? Allow me to have a little fun! It s my 79th birthday, okay? Anne This is Petersen: a part of Fankultur a fan fic written og fanfiktion by Birgitte (2012 Schmidt.

24 Peer to peer criticism Twilight is a miserable book...

25 Cover designs

26 HOW DO ADULTS READ THE POPULAR?

27 fanfiktion RECEPTION IN DANISH NEWS Discussing young women's emotional life:

28 fanfiktion The Danish media critics are maintaining the cultural hierarchy within which "vulgar hogwash romance", "morons", "bad taste" and the "involuntary comical" is linked to young women's emotional lives, that apparently only exists at the bottom of the cultural pecking order

29 EDUCATIONAL ISSUES

30 fanfiktion IN THE CLASS ROOM? Does fan culture have a role to play in the class room at all?

31 fanfiktion Renews tradition The fan culture in a way renews the tradition and thereby in some way maintains it. Fan cultures are much more aesthetically faceted and nuanced than many adults imagine a popular culture being. Fan culture brings out new literary competencies, text linguistics and genres. Is it the way to renew tradition?

32 fanfiktion New media literacies Fan fiction is a part of the new media literacies. Aspects that can be used both pedagogically and educationally. On the other hand, fan culture has its own value; founded on a sub-cultural capital that might profit from being part of the more private and personal niches, affinity spaces and groups from which they emerge. Should it be in the class room at all? Being a part of the new literacy, the answer is yes.

33 fanfiktion What to do in the class room Students can research by using one of the following methods: Auto etnography Etnography in the living room Etnography among informants.

34 Links and stuff With a Summary in English Any Questions?
