Abstract:

Studies of gender, science fiction television, and fan culture have often asserted that female fans resist patriarchy by negotiating cultural texts through such practices as fan fiction and deliberation. This analysis holds that specific motivation and context must be considered in order to advance such a claim, especially in light of undercurrents of misogyny contributing to such phenomena as "slash" fan fiction authored by women and dealing with romances between male heroes. With this in mind, the study assesses the practices of female fans as well as relevant text and production factors in the context of particular, gender-related issues surrounding the series "Farscape" and "Stargate SG-1," and finds that activities designated as emancipatory can, in fact, reproduce hegemony, and that fans sometimes appropriate resistive rhetoric in defense of hegemonic proclivities.

Resistance Reexamined: Gender Fan Practices and Science Fiction Television This essay considers the activities of fans of science fiction television series in order to situate and dispute gender-related claims of counter-hegemonic resistance advanced and/or contested in previous analyses of fan culture. The programs Farscape and Stargate SG-1 are spotlighted. The issues spurring the inquiry spring from now legendary debates between advocates of institutional investigation and/or political economy of media/culture (see Garnham 1995; Harms & Dickens 1996; Kellner 1992; 1997)
