All of the contributors are connected to the internationally acclaimed Theory and Art of Magic program at Muhlenberg College, through which artists and scholars study the history, theory, and practice of the magical arts
The fanfiction reader : folk tales for the digital age by Francesca Coppa( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written originally as a fanfiction for the series Twilight, the popularity of 50 Shades of Gray has made obvious what was always clear to fans and literary scholars alike: that it is an essential human activity to read and retell epic stories of famous heroic characters. The Fanfiction Reader showcases the extent to which the archetypical storytelling exemplified by fanfiction has continuities with older forms: the communal tale-telling cultures of the past and the remix cultures of the present have much in common. Short stories that draw on franchises such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, James Bond, and others are accompanied by short contextual and analytical essays wherein Coppa treats fanfiction as a rich literary tradition, one that has primarily been practiced by women and sexual and racial minorities, in which non-mainstream themes and values are expressed"--

Blood and aphorism: Joe Orton, theatre, and the new aristocracy in Great Britain by Francesca Coppa( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the years leading up to homosexual reform, Orton positioned himself as part of the new wave of drama in order to strengthen the class argument made by those writers, but he also worked consciously to queer the movement. The angry young men had claimed literature from those whom they considered the effeminate, leisured, upper class; Orton tried to show that literature could be working-class, masculine, and also queer. Orton took advantage of a larger cultural moment in which working-class masculinity was glorified, sexualized, and flaunted as never before to link the iconographies of angry young men and male homosexual desire. Using both his published and unpublished works, I show how Orton, in collaboration with his lover and partner Kenneth Halliwell, struggled and strategized throughout his literary career to articulate a working class, homosexual intellectual position
