Yuri Research

It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of my article On defining yuri in Transformative Works and Culture, no. 24 in which I take a definitive look at why any definition of “Yuri” cannot be definitive.  ^_^

As I’ve said elsewhere, if you spot a mistake in the article kindly do not tell me. I am already quite nauseous from looking at it over and over. ^_^ My sincere thanks the folks at TWC, who were absolutely lovely guiding me through their (to my mind labyrinthine) processes. I cannot imagine having to do that professionally, I’d absolutely lose what little grip on sanity I already have. I have sincere sympathy for academic researchers who need to publish regularly.

If you need to write a piece of research on Yuri and are looking for  resources, check out the Yuri Essays Page on Yuricon! And if you have written a piece of Yuri-related research, we’d love to host it.
