The works of Joss Whedon may be incredibly, sometimes annoyingly, popular with us denizens of the internet, but one aspect of this fan community that many outsiders are unaware of is how studied his work is in the academic community.

Remember where you were when you found out John Lennon died? How about Princess Diana or even Jeff Buckley? I remember where I was when I saw Ayrton Senna die. It is a moment etched into my memory, easily recognisable and quick to recall. I was 14.
