A Susan Boyle Fan community, Game of Thrones fan site, Sherlock Holmes Fan Club site. These are just a few examples in a vast jungle. Fans of television series, films, games, or music express themselves in all manner of ways. Virtually on blog sites or forums, but also in real life at meetings. There will be a conference about fan cultures, called Making and Sharing, or MASH for short, in the Maastricht art house Lumière on Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July.
