Vidding is a long-standing remix practice in which predominantly female media fans reedit television or film into music videos. Vidding is important not only as an art form in its own right but also as a subcultural — and often feminist — reinterpretation of and confrontation with mainstream media culture. Kristina Busse and Alexis Lothian demonstrate the contentious relationships that can develop when fanvids enter the realm of academic discourse.
