In this talk, Tracy will discuss The #GeekGirls Project, her two-year digital anthropology project around networked fandoms and digital tribes. Tracy’s research on this hashtag began in 2016 with graduate coursework at Duke University and contributed to her being named a 2017-2018 Graduate Fellow in Duke’s Story Lab, a humanities lab within the John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute. Through the Lab, she continued her work by traveling to Seattle for GeekGirlCon 2017, a fan-created, material-world convention born from the original online, digital movement. Tracy’s project recently concluded when she was invited by the co-founder of GeekGirlCon to speak on a San Diego Comic-Con International 2018 panel called “What Rebellions Are Built On: Popular Culture, Radical Hope, and the Politically Engaged Geek.”
