Archive of Our Own and the Gift Culture of Fanfiction by Olivia Rile
My work here is to study the fannish gift culture, investigating its current state, value, and usage. How does it relate to the concepts of gender and community? How has it been shaped by the Internet, capitalism, and evolving fan culture? In this paper I will endeavor to address these questions. I will begin with a literature review focusing on fanfiction and its relation to gender, community, and the gift culture, and then move into my own analysis, studying the fannish gift culture as it is embodied in the fanfiction site Archive of Our Own.
