Fan Futures—Beyond the Archive: Papers from the FanLIS 2022 Symposium

Price, L. ORCID: 0000-0001-7747-4210 & Robinson, L. ORCID: 0000-0001-5202-8206 (2022). Fan Futures—Beyond the Archive: Papers from the FanLIS 2022 Symposium. Proceedings from the Document Academy, 9(1), 1. doi: 10.35492/docam/9/1/1


Following the first successful FanLIS symposium (Price & Robinson, 2022), our aim in 2022 was to continue to build bridges between the two fields, doing this through two streams held over the two-day event—the first stream being ‘Beyond the Archive’, and the second ‘Fan Futures’. ‘Beyond the Archive’ focused on the ways in which fans move beyond traditional relationships with the archive to subvert, use and perhaps even abuse the archive to create and innovate. ‘Fan Futures’ then zoomed out from the archive to consider different aspects of the information communication chain—creation, organisation, dissemination, discovery, management, preservation, analysis, use and understanding—traditional domains of concern to LIS—and how fan practice is changing and innovating in those areas.
