Theoretical chapters map existing fan studies research and develop new theoretical perspectives of fandom by bringing fan studies, play theory and mediatization theory together.

Theory chapters are paired with case study chapters providing comprehensive, in-depth-analysis of fandoms from the US, UK and Scandinavia as examples of different play moods and playful practices in a transmedia perspective.

Empirical examples are taken from a wide range of media, including television (e.g. Sherlock, SKAM, Gilmore Girls etc.), musicals (e.g. Hamilton Musical, Dear Evan Hansen), podcasts (e.g. Pod Save America, Serial), politicians (e.g. Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, Donald Trump), films series (e.g. Harry Potter, Star Wars, The Avengers) and media platforms such as Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, and Archiveofourown.

Introduction: fans just wanna have fun

<strong>Part 1: Play Moods</strong>

1. Fandom as mediatized play

2. Play moods in digital fandom

<strong>Part 2: Play Modes </strong>

3. Play rules in transmedia participation: <i>SKAM</i> fandom

4. Language play on social media: the digital room where it happens

<strong>Part 3: Fanization, Dark and Deep Play</strong>

5. The playful fanization of political culture

6. Dark and deep play: QAnon as transmedia conspiracy

7. Conclusion: the role of fan play in networked culture

"Mediatized Fan Play provocatively and brilliantly rethinks fandom - and fan studies - by emphasizing the full breadth of fan experience rather than just fans' productivity/performance. By centring her analysis on play, Line Nybro Petersen is able to cast a far wider net across the actuality of what fans actually do as fans. At the same time, drawing on the sociology of mediatization means that Petersen can innovatively explore today's mainstreaming of fandom, or 'fanization', in politics and conspiracy theories. Mediatized Fan Play is a superb, engaging and energising book that hits 'play' on important new ways of understanding fandom."

Professor Matt Hills, author of Fan Cultures and Doctor Who: The Unfolding Event

"This welcome addition to media studies places the concept and practice of play at the forefront of understanding fandoms and the broader "fanization" of cultural and political life. In an insightful and engaging analysis that emphasizes the interpersonal nature of play - and the value of play in and of itself - Petersen argues that it is precisely through the playful character of fandom that fandom matters in broader social contexts. Case studies focus on the Norwegian streaming series SKAM, the musical Hamilton, and most provocatively, the QAnon conspiracy theory. This is superb and timely scholarship."
