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.

CFP: National Women's Studies Association Journal (NWSA Journal)

Special Issue on Aging, Ageism, and Old Age, Spring 2006

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.

MASTERS OF MAGIC: ESSAYS ON WIZARDS IN WESTERN CULTURE

In J. R. R. Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS, the Hobbits are warned, "Do not
meddle in the affairs of wizards"; yet, few readers today, in a time when
the wizard features so prominently in both popular culture and scholarship,

Jeffrey Weinstock

Although the announced deadline for submissions for the _Reading Rocky
Horror: The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Popular Culture_ edited collection
project has passed, I will still consider additional submissions.

The initial cfp netted a fine group of essays, but one too narrowly focused
on issues of spectatorship or gender. I will still consider essays on those
topics, but am most interested in submissions that tackle the film, its
cult, and its influence from other perspectives.

If you are interested in developing an essay, please contact me at
<Jeffrey.Weinstock_at_cmich.edu> or (989) 774-3101.
