  1. Hi!

    I am a sociologist (and criminologist) at the University of Windsor who tends to focus her research around popular culture in relation to crime and criminal justice, gender and sexuality, and social interaction and communication. I am currently conducting research on fan culture and online fandom communities and came across your website and find myself very interested in what you’re doing 🙂

    In addition to my newly created website, I have a spot on LiveJournal at: http://community.livejournal.com/drdstudies

    I see you’re a U of T grad 🙂 Looking forward to reading some of your work and to perhaps pick your brain on occasion with respect to fan studies.

    • Hi Danielle,

      Great to hear from you! I’ll definitely check out your website. I’m happy to chat about my work, but be warned that once I start I have troubling shutting up. 🙂 I’m looking forward to hearing more about your work as well.
