Title: Slash as Genre
Author: Webb, Erin
Abstract: This work applies the tools of genre analysis--specifically the models for genre analysis provided by Rick Altman in The American Film Musical (1989) and Maria Antónia Coutinho and Florencia Miranda in "To Describe Genres: Problems and Strategies" (2009)--to the recurring features of slash fanfiction in order to speculate on the concerns that have underlain its folk production and circulation since the mid-1970s. It offers a text-based interpretation of a frequently grossly over-simplified body of literature; it investigates not only a particular mode of pleasure, with all the anxieties that inhere to modes of pleasure, but also a particular mode of meta-narration and critical intervention.
