It's alright. I'm judging me, too.

Me:
and id be in the cafe like, 'but what does 'equality' mean? what form could or would equality take? we have to deconstruct this notion 'equality'
Peter:
they want to be able to fucknsuck after their weddings. thats equality
Me:
thats assimilation! equality has to remain a RADICAL concept. and fucking isnt radical. fucking is bourgeois.

EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING RIGHT NOW AND READ THIS BECAUSE HOLY SHIT MY WHOLE LIFE JUST CHANGED FOR THE BETTER.

So apparently in addition to running Archive of Our Own and providing legal advocacy to fans who run up against plagiarism accusations, the Organization for Transformative Works also publishes a peer-reviewed academic journal called Transformative Works and Cultures that is dedicated to promoting scholarship about fanworks and practices. This journal is 100% free to access and has been publishing 2-3 volumes (each containing 15-18 articles, essays, interviews, and book reviews) per year since 2008. 

Why is this so fucking exciting? For one thing, academia has a terrible habit of being increeeedibly sloooow to discuss new ideas — partly due to the very long turnaround time necessary to get articles published. By contrast, Transformative Works and Cultures is super up-to-date and teaming with topics that are actually relevant to modern fandom.

Want to read an academic article about female fans being “fridged” in comic book culture? Done. Interested in learning about the societal implications of mpreg within fanfiction/fanart? Here you go. Want to learn more about race and ethnicity in fandom? Well, would you look at that. Feel a mighty need to read a specially-conducted interview with Orlando Jones about producer/fan interactions in “Sleepy Hollow”? Holy butts the show only came out in 2013 and they already have this what the hell.

And all of this — all of the knowledge, all of the analysis, all of the academic credibility being added to fannish ideas — is 100% free to access.

Transformative Works and Cultures is doing fandom an incredible service: by giving a voice to people within fandom, by preserving the discussions and ideas that were important to fannish culture at certain points in time, by emphasizing our significance as a subculture — and all the while doing it on our own terms.

These are fans working hard to give legitimacy to other fans, and if you don’t think that’s rad as hell then I don’t even know what to tell you. 

Shout-out to the Journal committee! \o/

AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THERE GOES MY WORKDAY

waltwhitmaniac this is probably of interest, unless you already knew about it

You know what, I can over think everything and find a million ways to doubt myself. I’ve just come to realize that, we’re only here briefly. And while I’m here, I wanna allow myself joy. So fuck it.

Her, (2014)

Iiiiii want to give Ann Clayborne a gigantic hug oh my gosh :( Except I don’t think that would even help at all.

I want to give Anne Clayborne a MAGICAL hug.

The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.
@KrystVegaNeteru

This is beautiful.

I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it

Argh, I seriously wish there was more on African Art movements in Art/Art History books. This monument was made back in 2006 for crying out loud! There’s so much that the art-historian in me is burning to say about this…But short story shorter, the movement known as African Renaissance is a relatively modern and multi-faceted concept, starting around the mid-20th century, even though more often than not it takes up such a small section of the so-called “Non-Western” classes at uni. Just the fact that we still treat the name of the class with such an Otherness mentality is so absurd and more than maddening, but there you have it folks. Sigh.

Woah
