Welcome to the Whedon Studies Bibliography!

This always-evolving listing of academic articles and essays (and some pseudo-academic)* is broken down into two sections:

The first includes published materials such as essays in print and online journals and collections, theses and dissertations, books on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly/Serenity, Dollhouse, and other Joss Whedon works such as Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and Fray, and also some unpublished conference papers otherwise made available on websites such as the Slayage conference archive.

The second includes unpublished materials such as papers given at conferences, such as the Slayage Conferences, the Popular Culture & American Culture Associations Conferences, or Blood, Text and Fears. Watch for many of these entries to shift to the first list as they become available!

This bibliography is indebted to Derik Badman's Academic Buffy Bibliography (2002), and seeks to pick up and expand upon his work. It is also indebted to the old Encyclopedia of Buffy Studies by discipline.

* Please note that, as Badman stated before me, it is difficult to limit the academic scope of this bibliography with any clear boundaries. "Some articles obviously belong and some are more marginal. Inclusion is based on my subjective opinion of what constitutes an academically or critically minded discussion of the series. Weeding out irrelevant articles - industry news, star-based articles, minor news bits, etc. - becomes more difficult" the closer one veers toward popular publications. Similarly, there are also a handful of articles from fan-based websites that I have deemed high-minded enough for inclusion here.

If you'd like to request any edits or know of additional materials that may be relevant, don't hesitate to contact me via email at alysa.hornick at gmail dot com. But please do not ask for copies of any of this material. I do not have special access or permission to share unpublished material. You might try contacting authors and scholars individually. Many of their email addresses can be found with a quick internet search. :)

I'd like to say MANY THANKS to the conveners and personnel of SCW6 in Sacramento, CA, and also to J. Gordon Melton and Don Macnaughtan, my fellow bibliographers! "What can't we face if we're together?... (Except for bunnies.)"
