My name is Ludovica Price, although I am better known as Ludi Price.
I completed my PhD in Information Science at City University London’s CityLIS, which focused on the information behaviour of fan communities on the internet – my thesis, “Serious leisure in the digital world: exploring the information behaviours of fan communities”, is available online. Since completing my PhD, I have been based at CityLIS’ Centre for Information Science, and am a Visiting Lecturer at CityLIS. My research interests are presently focusing on participatory culture, convergence culture, fan culture, remediation, produsage, prosumers, pro-ams, social metadata, fan tagging and folksonomies, social curation, and commons-based peer production.
I am also co-founder of the FanLIS Project, which aims to build bridges between fandom, fan studies, and LIS.
Part time, I also work as China & Inner Asian Librarian at SOAS Library.
