Listening Like a Fan





Kyle D. Stedman is an assistant professor of English at Rockford University, where he teaches first-year composition, digital and sonic rhetoric, professional communication, and creative nonfiction. His work on sound and/or fandom has appeared in Computers and Composition, Currents in Electronic Literacy, Harlot, Composition Forum, and the Sounding Out! blog. He only recently discovered how satisfying it is to listen to Star Wars scores in the car.

"This piece is dedicated to the memory of Twila Yates Papay, the professor who most encouraged me to listen like a fan, and the memory of Phillip Daniel Stedman, the sibling who most understood what it means to be an obsessive fan."
