A livejournal community dedicated to discussing fandom. Formerly open-access, as of 9/2008 all posts are moderated.

From the User Info (accessed 1/2009):

"Fanthropology is a community dedicated to discussing and analyzing fandom culture, news, and events, for both fandom in general and specific fandoms. Our goal is analysis, understanding, and relaying of information related to fan culture."

In recent years, activity has slowed, and the majority of posts have been wneleh's "Media References to Fanfic," compiled weekly and cross-posted to the Dreamwidth community as_others_see_us.
