Recommendation: Crip Fanfiction Research
I’m recing this site for two reasons.
- It’s my roommates site
- Her research is awesome!
Cath does some great research about disability in fan fiction and fan fiction communities. I am so fascinated by the work she does related to these online spaces.
Her work also moves outside of fan fiction itself to explore web accessibility, how communities are shaped and function, how ableism within these communities is addressed and much more.
She has details on her main research project and other smaller projects she is doing.
Outside of her own work she has collected some great information about disability, activism, representations, and web accessibility.
Overall, there is a ton of information and resources on her page. Go and check it out!
PS. I adapted Cath’s accessibility policy from her site with her permission!
