I intend to talk about how the fanbases are able to influence ARMY. In times like protests, BTS birthday projects, stream parties, etc., our fandom gathers together and is part of something bigger. The ARMY must be interested in learning it because, right now, we are phisically separated, but the fanbases keep the fandom together and still fighting.
- My name is Alicia Lana, I’m from Fortaleza, a Brazilian city. I’m graduating in Psychology, aiming to study how BTS and ther lyrics can influence us. I focus on the therapeutic effects of their music, ARMY social behavior, and how both have the power to identify and fight against opression. I’m also part of the B-Armys Acadêmicas project. I run my own fanbase, where we have the purpose to bring attention or even BTS to our state, Ceará.
