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.

Call for Papers
Broadcasting Modernism

Abstracts are invited for a volume on the relations between Modernist literature and aspects of radio. Abstracts might treat either the influence of radio on literary production, or the impact of literary production on the forms of broadcasting activity. As an alternative outlet for creative expression, radio employed many writers and poets in the dissemination of culture via the public/national radio services of the B.B.C. or the C.B.C, or via U. S. commercial stations. Papers treating this topic in other languages are also welcome, as is commentary on the differing practices and impact of commercial vs. national broadcasting systems.

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.
