Profile

**Simone Driessen is a senior lecturer in the Media and Communication Department of Erasmus University Rotterdam.** As a lecturer she is involved in several courses in the [IBCoM-bachelor programme][] (i.e. International & Global Communication, Communication as a Social Force, and Media Entertainment & Popular Culture). She also supervises theses for the Master Media Studies programs. In June 2017, Simone obtained her PhD from the Erasmus Research Centre for Media, Communication and Culture (ERMeCC). Her PhD-project focused on the affordances of mainstream popular music in the everyday life of ageing audiences. In several empirical cases, she studied how a particular generation explains and legitimises the consumption and appreciation of music from its recent past in different contexts, such as commercially based reunion events (e.g. of Dutch pop act Doe Maar) or the long-term fandom of boy bands (like the Backstreet Boys). In addition to researching why fans remain fans over time, Simone is currently examinig why fans discontinue their fandom (e.g. after a controversial moment or the cancellation of an artist).
