otw_news has announced a call for academic papers by the new journal Transformative Works and Cultures. From the notice on otw_news:
Transformative Works and Cultures (TWC) is a new international peer-reviewed journal published by the Organization for Transformative Works edited by Kristina Busse and Karen Hellekson. TWC publishes articles about popular media, fan communities, and transformative works, broadly conceived.
More information can be found at their website: Transformative Works and Cultures.

Open Doors update from Mary Ellen Curtin (mecurtin)
The Open Doors project of the Organization For Transformative Works is dedicated to offering shelter to at-risk fannish projects. While some of these projects will be integrated into the Archive of Our Own or the Wiki once those services are up and running, others which have a particular historical significance or are structurally difficult to integrate may continue to be preserved as "special collections". We hope to be unveiling our first project well before the end of February.
OTW FAQ Part 1 is up for reading, mulling, and commenting. It's interesting.

And that covers what I have read today.
