The Fanacademic

My name is Julie Escurignan, and as you can guess, I am a Fan and an Academic: a Fan of TV series and a PhD Student in Film and Television Studies at the University of Roehampton, London. I am passionate about TV series and fandom, that is why my PhD is on HBO-Game of Thrones' transnational fans and transmedia experience. Through my research, I am trying to understand what the experience of the fans of Game of Thrones is, i.e how we, as fans, experience the GoT universe, from the TV series to the online platforms, material creations and fans’ meetings.
