1b Representing Reggaeton Through Fans' Online Community Archives
Communities of fans are collaboratively approaching the task of preserving the materials, memories and histories of the popular music genre, reggaeton. I explore two online spaces, the ‘Hasta ‘Bajo’ project and the ‘Reggaeton Con La Gata’ platform, as examples of community archives founded by fan-scholars. These initiatives invite participation, recognition and celebration of reggaeton, in turn constructing and revising historiographies of the genre, in response to institutional and dominant discourses. Speaking broadly to ideas on fan initiatives, this intervention frames the convergence between archiving and activism within these spaces as oriented toward the pursuit of cultural justice.
