TEP #18 – Maria Alberto

For this week’s episode, we are so happy to have a scholar and fan who investigates the Tolkien fan community: Maria Alberto!

Maria is a fourth year PhD student at the University of Utah. Her research focuses on adaptation and fan studies. We want to encourage any our listeners who have read or written fanfiction to participate in The Tolkien Fanfiction Survey: tinyurl.com/tolkienfanficsurvey. Long-time listeners will recognize Maria’s colleague in this project, Dawn Walls-Thumma, who was our guest in an earlier episode! We also want to mention that Maria has chapters in two forthcoming collections: Queer Tolkien and Cities and Strongholds of Middle-earth.
