Project Details


The Celebrity, Citizenship and Status (CCS) project examines the relationship between celebrity and citizenship, as well as the cultural apparatus (literature; film; photography; television, print and social media) by which celebrity status is realized and negotiated, revoked or sustained.

Considering ‘celebrity’ in both its historical and contemporary manifestations, the project brings together researchers from English Literature, Language and Linguistics, History and Sociology with the aim of advancing academic inquiry in the field of celebrity studies and encouraging cross-disciplinary collaboration.

The project is committed to producing and promoting a series of events that explore the construction and dissemination of celebrity in literature, (popular) culture, and society.
