Jenkins- Star Trek Rerun, Reread, Rewritten
1.) On pg 88, Jenkins talks about why fans enter into fandom and states the reason is due to “a movement from social and cultural isolation, doubly imposed upon them as women within a patriarchal society…” What do you think this means?
2.) Why do you think followers of Star Trek would be interested in fanzines and letterzines, since it is not written by the producers?
3.) Along with the previous question, why do you think fans would risk potential legal action being taken against them, for clear copyright infringement?
4.) Why do you think the percentage of fanzine writers (90%) is women? What specific reasons are there?
