The term "Fan-Scholar" was coined by Matt Hills in his 2002 monograph, Fan Cultures. [1] A fan-scholar is defined as a fan who uses academic methodology and theories in work produced for fandom. Hills argues that academics and aca-fen find fan-scholars and scholarship a threat to academic authority. A review of Hills' book can be found at: Scope: An Online Journal of Film & TV Studies
