Specific Pages

There is no official way to cite specific chapters of a dissertation or thesis, which is how I would recommend citing particular webpages. However, to borrow from both the methods for citing webpages and the methods for citing book chapters, I think you can use quotation marks to cite the particular webpage you are on.

For instance, if you only want to cite one of the "Critical Fan Case Studies", it may look like this:

APA Format: Messina, C. M. (2021). ''Missandei deserves better:' Loving Blackness through critical (anti)fan uptakes and disruptakes.
