academic literary thing.

a blog to track my progress as a participant-observer in my ethnography of the homestuck fandom on tumblr.

main blog can be found at goawei!

HEY HOMESTUCK PEEPS

My name is Wei and I’m doing my dissertation on the Homestuck fandom on Tumblr. More details about this can be found on this blog, on http://vriskandalous.tumblr.com/post/53207410389/okay-so-what-is-this here. And I’m going to need some… Well, test subjects. Sort of. 

So I’d really appreciate if you’d be able to reblog this post if you were willing to allow me to use your Tumblr in my study, so that I can follow you. This is especially good for me if you have done anything to contribute to the actual comic i.e. art, sprites, etc etc but if you haven’t, that’s fine nevertheless. (If you HAVE actually contributed to the comic, message me privately on this blog and tell me what you’ve done, because that would be A+ immensely helpful.)

Thank you so much, guys. Hopefully my paper will help get Homestuck out into the academic sphere, because I haven’t seen any fandom studies on the HS fandom just yet. And hey, more exposure is always good right?

By reblogging this post, you agree that I will be allowed to use material from your blog in my dissertation, including commentary, fanart, fanfiction, music, etc. I will give all credit to you on your screen name, and your real name if you so wish. 

(also, if possible, please ignore the other post going around from my main blog, goawei! It’s probably a LOT easier for me to keep track of people who reblog from this blog, and consent is a lot clearer. Thank you people.)
