Whitney Monaghan’s interest in the ephemeral affective dimensions of mashup video by queer girls also thinks through the creative possibilities of editing and recombining video clips within subcultural practices of invention and resistance. Thinking about the value of queer girl mashups within a broader context of visual exclusion becomes important in helping Monaghan make sense of the cultural and emotional value of these participatory fan texts. Exploring the tensions between the desire to archive cherished popular culture elements within creative projects that are fleeting and provision within online digital environments, she demonstrates the unique ways in which queer screen cultures are situated in relation to affect and temporalities.
