Sociology graduate student; just finishing my M.A. (Spring 2009) and about to start my PhD. I used to write fanfic and meta (a lot) but now I spend all my time writing academically instead. On the good side, most of my academic work has been about fans (hooray for merging fun and work)!

M.A. Research Paper: Games and Gamers: Adult Female Gamers and Identity Display

My dissertation is going to be about intersectionality in fan communities. I think. If my committee doesn't freak out on me.

So consider me your old school fandom lurker, until I have energy again.
