In this talk, Professor Louisa Stein (FMMC) looks at how we transform media by weaving it into our everyday lives. She examines the transformative work of fans creating gender-bending cosplay music videos (CMVs) for the anime series Yuri On Ice. In their ongoing release of videos, these fan authors intertwine the narrative seriality of Yuri on Ice with serial narratives of their own lives. In so doing, they embody, recreate, repeat, and transform key emotional moments and images that, in their repetition, affectively bind together larger networks of community and self-authorship.
