The development of the internet and new technology has increased the visibility of fandom. It broke down the geographic barriers and made it easier for people to access free flow of information, connect and communicate at anytime anywhere. The internet allowed fans of TV, films, music, video games among others to participate in sharing, producing, circulating and promoting cultural products, it has become a new distribution channel for amateur cultural production. In this course we will analyse online fan cultures of popular television dramas such as Sherlock, Black MirrorSKAM through different online fan communities, fan fiction/slash fan fiction communities, interpretative communities, etc. We will discuss how fandoms practice differentiate in relation to culture, gender, media censorship, linguistic among others.
