Description

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, hosted by the University of Winchester, 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?
