[ecrea] Celebrity Studies Cultural Report - Open CFP

Wed Nov 13 08:16:20 GMT 2013

The Cultural Report Section of the journal of /Celebrity Studies/ is seeking papers that examine and explore celebrity and fame in focus areas that are traditionally marginalized. This is because celebrity is a worldwide phenomenon and no population or culture is too small to produce, circulate and consume fame. Too often these cultures do not get explored.

The editor of the Cultural Report seeks papers of 2,500 words in length that approach the movement of celebrity and fame outside of dominant Western contexts and cultures. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

Movement of celebrity in the:

                Middle East

                Latin America

                Eastern Europe

                African Nations

                Asia including Afghanistan, China, India, Pakistan, Japan

Marginal and minoritarian celebrity figures

Indigenous cultures

Peripheral star and celebrity case studies

This is an open call for papers with no set deadline mandated. All accepted papers will be blind peer reviewed. The style guidelines can be found at the following URLs: and
