Essay 1

Please respond to the following question in essay format:

How would you define “slash fandom”?

Make sure to address categorizations of slash, femslash, het, and gen in your analysis and how they may or may not be differentiated. Also discuss sexuality as an identity and identification both of characters within a transformative fanwork, as well as in the fans themselves. You must draw on at least four sources we have read or watched in class, two of which must be formal academic sources, as well as two outside sources including one formal academic source. (Your outside sources may be drawn from the recommended reading, or unassigned chapters/pieces from any of the required texts.)

Your final product must be 1500-2000 words, handed in electronically.
