Students in Hobby Histories formed groups to develop a hobby project for a specific community. Their process took them through an initial “pitch” stage, a group plan document, and a focus group session (rough draft peer review). In the end, they found a variety of discourse communities with “gaps” for their projects to fill.
Several groups focused on providing resources for members of active hobby communities such as Ultimate Frisbee , Indian Classical Dance, and alternate ways to get around on campus. Others sought to provide resources for cosplayers, Graffiti and street artists in Atlanta, and even for people who love Legos but are tired of stepping on them.
