New Directions in Music Fan Studies

This special issue on fan studies aims to build a bridge with the study of popular music in order to inspire further investigation of music fandom. Toija Cinque and Sean Redmond discuss connections between migrant identities and the music of David Bowie; Marion Wasserbauer and Alexander Dhoest explore alternatives to the stereotypical images of LGBTQ music fans; Pilar Lacasa, Laura Méndez Zaballos and Julián de la Fuente Prieto concentrate on adolescent female fans of One Direction; Simone Driessen and Bethan Jones present an auto-ethnographic account of their fandom of Boyzone; Chris Anderton, examines new forms of online record collecting and archiving; and Gayle Stever discusses offline interactions between Josh Groban and his fan community. This issue also presents Rob Ahler’s discussion of auratic presence in live performance, as well as a selection of book reviews on popular music fandom, notions of the DIY punk shows, hip-hop identities in Europe, participatory parties, the vinyl format, song interpretation and a history of rock.
