Sure, you already know about fan activism organizations like the Harry Potter Alliance and Nerdfighteria here in the United States, but how much do you know about fan activism in other countries? Come hear about Pottermania in China, KPop influences on Latin American youth, Twitter activism in South Africa and other instances in which fans transform storyworld elements into real-time ethical and social change. You might pick up some new strategies or just get inspired by what young and emerging adults in countries like Egypt, India, Japan, Germany, China, Mexico, and Puerto Rico are up to!
