From Where We Are

Fandom in isolation

How pop culture supports us in a time of need.

Art and popular culture has become more meaningful during the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether due to a sense of distraction, nostalgia or connection, people are drawn to pop culture in a search for meaning as the world continues to suffer from the effects of the coronavirus. Fandom provides people a sense of relief and joy from the fears and anxieties of the outside world.
