Hi everyone!

My name is Rachael and I am a senior at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Georgia (USA). I am currently working on my Honors thesis, for which I have chosen to research the online Degrassi fan community.

I started watching the show in August 2006 after my roommate signed us up for a ridiculously extensive cable TV package which included The N. I’d heard about Degrassi before from some friends (who are all college aged and older), so when I saw that there was a marathon on I decided to check it out and see what all the fuss was about. This was when The N was showing “every episode ever,” just before Season 6 premiered… needless to say, I didn’t get much done for the next few weekends! The show was completely addictive and I immediately understood why my friends were so hooked.

I had already decided to do my Honors research on some kind of online fan community, but when I discovered Degrassi I knew that it would probably attract a really interesting group of people to study, so I scrapped all of my other ideas I dived right in.

I’ve created a Livejournal to use as a blog and also as a means to connect with other Degrassi fans. I’ve already joined a few Degrassi-related LJ communities, and I’ve been reading a few of the friends pages of a couple of Degrassi RPGs. I’ve also been investigating non-Livejournal Degrassi sites (like the Degrassi Boards and some others).

Although I am just in the early phases of my research now, after I get a better idea of the “online world” of Degrassi, I would like to eventually communicate directly with some fans (you!) to get their (your!) first-hand perspective about what they think about Degrassi and how they interact with other fans. Until then, I will probably just be lurking around here (so I thought it would be nice if I introduced myself first!).

In the meantime, it would be great if you would like to friend me going_there if you’re interested in reading my thoughts on my research and possibly commenting on my posts. I know I will probably have some Degrassi-related questions as I go about this project, and I figure that you all would be the best people to ask!

For now, if you happen to know of any great Degrassi websites, messageboards, or other communities, I would totally appreciate you leaving me a comment here or at my journal with those links.

Since the new episodes of Degrassi are airing tonight on The N. I thought I would post this to start discussions on what you think about them. Feel free to keep this community alive!

Maybe we should have an icon contest in light of the "new" season?
