Hi there,

I (Phd candidate in Theatre, Film and Media Studies, University of
Vienna, Austria ->
https://tfm.univie.ac.at/personal/tfm-staff/jana-herwig/) am also
currently working on 4chan, with one article appearing in English this
year, and two in German

Two are written from a theatre / performance studies perspective, one
from a media studies perspective (Unfortunately: Not the English one,
but if anyone is working on a 4chan reader - or interested in putting
one together, for that matter, I'd be most happy to rework it into an
English version.)

You can download the manuscripts from here (with section titles for
the English article, to convey an idea of the content)
