Revisiting Star Studies Conference – Newcastle University June 12th-14th 2013

I’m speaking on ageing female stardom at this exciting conference.

The conference aims to reassess some of the dominant models in star studies, to identify under-researched areas in film stardom, and to generate new critical paradigms. In particular we will explore critical models that are more appropriate to address non-Hollywood stardom, including that of Asia, Europe and Latin America.

Keynote speakers:

Yingjin Zhang (University of California at San Diego)
Neepa Majumdar (University of Pittsburgh)
Stephanie Dennison (University of Leeds)

Keynote panel led by Martin Shingler and Susan Smith (University of Sunderland)
Ginette Vincendeau (Kings College, London)
Pam Cook (University of Southampton)
