CFP: Transformations in Celebrity Culture: The Fifth International Celebrity Studies Conference

Thursday 18 – Saturday 20 June, 2020 | University of Winchester, UK.
http://celebritystudiesconference.com/ | #celebritystudies2020 | [log in to unmask] 
Sponsored by the Culture-Media-Text Research Centre, Faculty of Arts, University of Winchester.

Routledge and the University of Winchester are delighted to announce Transformations in Celebrity Culture:  The Fifth International Celebrity Studies Journal conference.

Keynote speakers (confirmed):
●	Dr. Nandana Bose, FLAME University, India. 
●	Dr. Anthea Taylor, University of Sydney, Australia.
●	Prof. Brenda R. Weber, Indiana University Bloomington, USA.
●	Dr. Milly Williamson, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK. 

Celebrity Studies is now a rich, diverse and established field of academic study that focuses on the production, reception, and functions - social, psychological and textual - of a wide range of public figures. Building on theories of spectacle (Boorstin 1961), histories of fame (Braudy 1986), and studies of stardom (Dyer 1979, 1986; Gledhill 1991; Stacey 1994), the academic study of celebrity was given shape around the turn of the century by a number of seminal books (DeCordova 1990; Gamson 1994; Marshall 1997; Turner, Bonner and Marshall 2000; Giles 2000; Rojek 2001; Turner 2004), readers (Marshall 2006; Redmond and Holmes 2007), and edited collections (Holmes and Redmond 2006; Negra and Holmes 2011). The last decade has seen the publication of new editions of now-classic books (Turner 2014; Marshall 2014), new histories of celebrity (Inglis 2010; Lilti 2017), and a sustained expansion in myriad exciting directions, including online fame (Marwick 2013), celebrity politics (Wheeler 2013), celebrity and the environment (Brockington 2009), transnational stardom (Meeuf and Raphael 2013), celebrity and ‘race’ (Mask 2009), celebrity feminism (Taylor 2017), celebrity and ageing (Jermyn 2014), celebrity and disability (Howe and Parker 2012), the political economy of celebrity (Williamson 2016), queering celebrity (Halberstam 2013), celebrity and religion (Weber 2019), and literary celebrity (Honings and Franssen 2017), among many others. 

Since it first appeared in 2010 under the editorship of Sean Redmond and Su Holmes, the Routledge journal Celebrity Studies has become a key international publication in the field, providing an essential platform for the best new critical scholarship on celebrity and stardom. Following successful conferences in Melbourne, London, Amsterdam, and Rome, Transformations in Celebrity Culture thus provides the opportunity to both celebrate and take critical stock of the developments that shaped and shook the field during the first 10 years of Celebrity Studies journal, and to look forward into the future. In an era marked by crisis and anxiety, how has our understanding of stardom changed? What has been the impact of social, political, cultural and economic developments on the cultures of celebrity? Do we discern new, alternative forms of renown?
