Since beginning The Squee Project in 2012, I have recorded interviews with hundreds of women, femmes & non-binary fans. Initially, I had planned to produce a documentary about their contributions to fandom but there were too many interviews to organize into a narrative. We attempted to do a web series, but again we had way too much content.
We want to organize all the interviews into a database so that the interviews are available for researchers and fans to study over the next year.
In order to do this project justice, we need to fund a platform for the videos, transcribe the interviews so they are accessible to everyone and set up a search system.
We’d love to have help from librarians or skilled archivists to help us organize the materials. If you’d like to participate or support the project, this is a great opportunity and you’d be helping to bring the contributions of all these fans to light.
