The inaugural meeting of Transformative Works Discussion Group will be *5:30, November 6th* in the Department of Digital Humanities Seminar room (second level of the KCL, Drury Lane building). We hope that the discussion group will then continue on the first Thursday of each month.
In honour of Halloween, the meeting will include a presentation: “Non-humanity Never Looked So Good: Romance From the Long Tail to the Long Tentacle”.
Anyone (students, researchers, staff etc) who has an interest in the area of fandom and transformative works, whether text, image, film, audio or transmedia, or the communities/technology that surround them are invited to attend. We hope that this discussion group will give people working in this area a chance to exchange information and ideas in a friendly, interdisciplinary setting. To this end we would also like to give people an opportunity to volunteer to do a short presentation of their work or nominate a paper for review and discussion. If you are interested in presenting or nominating a discussion topic then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please circulate this information around your departments and to anyone else you think might be interested as these early meetings will be vital to gauging ongoing viability.
