“REVISITING STAR STUDIES”, 12-14 June 2013, Culture Lab, Newcastle University.

We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for “Revisiting Star Studies”, a major three-day international conference on film stardom.

A full programme including over 50 speakers from 12 different countries is now online, along with the information on travel, accommodation, and PG bursaries.

For further details and to register for the conference, please go to:

Please note, registration closes on 3rd June 2013.

This 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)

Hoping to see you in June at Newcastle!
