This archive contains the digital files of oral history interviews and their transcripts recorded by Finch Collins as part of his undergraduate thesis project Worldbuilding in Our World: Queer/Trans Oral Histories of Friends at the Table Fandom for the Department of Modern Culture and Media Honors Program at Brown University. This archive contains the digital files of oral history interviews and their transcripts recorded by Finch Collins as part of his undergraduate thesis project Worldbuilding in Our World: Queer/Trans Oral Histories of Friends at the Table Fandom for the Department of Modern Culture and Media Honors Program at Brown University. Worldbuilding in Our World: Queer/Trans Oral Histories of Friends at the Table Fandom documents the experiences of six queer and/or trans fans of the actual play podcast Friends at the Table. The project brings together queer game studies and fan studies with questions of technology, capitalism, and aurality to analyze the myriad ways that fans of Friends at the Table connect with the show itself and with the fandom. Worldbuilding in Our World consists of three parts: a written thesis, this oral history archive, and a digital exhibit called Trans at the Table. Worldbuilding in Our World asks how tabletop roleplaying games, actual play podcasts, and their fandoms produce queer possibilities against the grain of dominant media production, fundamentally tied to the real-world conditions of their creation.
