(Re)telling Stories: Fanart, authorship, and how stories are shared, reconstructed, and retold Program Hilton Anaheim
Avila B
Description :

Fan created works, from fan fiction to fan comics, are an increasingly visible and a richly rewarding way for fans to interact with their favorite stories from books, movies, and TV shows. At the same time, fan works raise a variety of sticky questions concerning copyright, the place of transformative work in literature, authorship, and what it means to be a writer and a reader. The ability to rewrite, recast, or redo a story or character has dramatically shifted the way readers process, share, and connect with works, authors, and other fans.

Writers, artists, and editors who have started out in the fandom world are making the transition to more traditional publishing. Is fan culture a boon to creators? A transgression against the original author’s intent and intellectual ownership? Is it hovering somewhere in between? Join a panel of authors, artists, librarians, and yes, fans, to explore the impact participatory fan culture has had and will continue to have on reading, literature, and how we encounter stories.

Grand Ballroom B
Description :

"Opening Access for a New Era of Scholarly Publishing"

The ALCTS Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group invites you to hear a panel of speakers present on three timely scholarly communication topics. Scholarly communication is going through enormous transformation due to the strong foothold of open access publishing and the desire of authors to retain more control over their copyrights and their works. Open access (OA) mandates are becoming more widespread amongst academic and research institutions, enabling authors to deposit their articles in an open access repository. The University of Kansas (KU) was the first U.S. public university to adopt an OA policy for scholarly articles, and KU led the formation of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI). The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) was founded by scholars over fifteen years ago as an open access, continually-updated, authoritative online encyclopedia funded through grants and institutional members. And, responding to the demand for more open access options, many publishers have expanded their open access journal offerings. SAGE Open is one such journal, representing a broad-based open-access option for the social & behavioral sciences and the humanities. Q&A discussion will follow.
