Adolescents and online fan fiction
This book presents an ethnographic and discourse analytic study of a highly popular online fan fiction writing space. Its analyses high-light the range of sophisticated literacy practices that English language learning youth engage in through their fan-related activities. Discussion also centers on how opportunities for language socialization, literacy, and identity development converge and diverge between academic settings and informal learning contexts such as fan fiction sites.
