GNED 101 C18W - Intro to Gen Ed-Fandoms  -  (3)  

        Kimberly  Jones   /  8/21/2017 - 12/14/2017

Calling all Whovians, Trekkies, Walker stalkers and more! Like fandom itself, this course is an example of serious play. Itís a space in which to be excited about fandom and to connect with other fannish people, but itís also an introduction to academic culture and general education concepts. We will examine a wide range of fandoms, approaching the subject from several different avenues, and creating awareness beyond the entertainment aspect toward a critical, social perspective. You donít have to know cosplay from Otaku culture or attend Comicon to take the class, but if you are fascinated by a particular book, movie, TV show, comic, singer, or sports team, come and represent.
