I did a crazy thing on Friday and submitted a proposal to present a paper at a romance conference. A day later now, I'm thinking I'm mad to do that. Maybe the organiser won't accept me. Here is the nutty proposal:
Is Modern Fan Fiction Killing Classic Romances?
Some academic and media judge modern fan fiction as “belittling” classic romances such as Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. They deem modern fan fiction as “too low” for the citizen media tend to sexualise and trivialise these great historical romances.
This paper explores the emergence of modern fan fiction and its impact on people’s views on classic romances.
Using Jane Austen’s fan fiction (JAFF) as an example, the paper will examine the socio-economic background of writers and readers, types of romances written, levels of creativity, gender equality and the sexualisation of fan fiction romance.
Drawing on primary research from the world of JAFF, this paper will prove that instead of killing classic romances, fan fiction encourage modern men and women to learn about and fall in love with classic romances once again.
