Interesting discussion of a medieval mystic as the founder of fanfic. (I believe a version was presented at the ICFA.) I like it, but there’s one thing I have to question:
The hermeneutics of suspicion is built on centuries of philosophical and pedagogical ideologies that separate body and mind, then rank the mind above the body. As feminist critics have pointed out, these are sexist ideologies, because they associate the mind, in all its rational dimensions, with men, and the body with women, effeminacy and femininity.
The second concept does not follow from the first.

Catherynne Valente and Alexandra Erin are not the Cool Kids. I find it strangely appropriate that Alexandra is posting from Hagerstown, MD, legendary home of Learned Elder of Fandom Harry Warner jr., a mostly good guy who was wonderful about encouraging new fans, but was a little old and conservative and not quite happy with girls in the clubhouse. (But I'm sure he never doxxed or SWATted anybody.)
