This chapter reads online fan fiction about black British/African diasporic women in popular fantasy texts, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Harry Potter, as critical responses to dominant discourse on globalization and identity in the age of the internet. Engages with current scholarship on race, gender, nation, and diaspora, including queer theory, and updates previous scholarship on fan fiction, race, and the internet.
