Some examples of Fan Oral Histories:
- The Media Fandom Oral History Project: The goal is to preserve a record of media fandom for future generations. The project is being run by Morgan Dawn and Franzeska Dickson and underwent a pilot test at Escapade 2012 under the Escapade convention sponsorship. The goal is to now expand the program to wider audiences to capture fandom’s history. Sponsored by Organization for Transformative Works.
- The Fan Fiction Oral History Project (also referred to as "an Fiction and Internet Memory Research Project" and "Media Fandom Oral History Project"). These thirty-one interviews are located here, at the University of Iowa Libraries. The thirty-one interviews conducted for this project were used for the book by Abigail De Kosnik called Rogue Archives: Digital Cultural Memory and Media Fandom.
- Vidding Oral History Project: This project is set up to document the experiences of many of the foremothers of vidding: that is, the community of pre-digital, live-action media vidders who were creating between 1975 - 1995. Current interviewees include: Kandy Fong, Sandy and Rache, (The Clucking Belles), and Morgan Dawn. An edited version of the Interview with Sandy and Rache ("The Clucking Belles") was published in Transformative Works and Cultures. Sponsored by Organization for Transformative Works.
