Celebrity Culture
                        Su Holmes and Sean Redmond

Celebrity Culture will represent a significant intervention in the field
on a number of different levels. Essentially, what we are proposing here is
a book which brings together approaches to stardom and celebrity which
range across historical periods, media forms and national contexts - as
well as disciplinary borders and modes of enquiry (film, television, music,
sport, Internet, print media). The book aims to bring together a broad
range of essays which address the contemporary, cross-media and
international landscape of today?s fame culture.

Feminist theorists of old age, such as Baba Copper, Barbara Macdonald,
Cynthia Rich, and Margaret Cruikshank have charged that women's studies and
the feminist movement have, in large part, ignored the issue of aging. In a
field in which so many other aspects of body-based identity are recognized,
debated, de- and re-constructed, and challenged, the subject of old age
remains relatively unexamined and untheorized - nearly taboo.

publication. The project of Nebula is to provide an
interface between specialist and highly sophisticated ideas

themes and topics presented in our issues. Nebula aims to

Microbiology etc.) in terms that anyone is able to
understand. We are also interested in providing an
