Call for Papers:  “Performing Stardom”: New Methods in Critical Star Studies

Friday 29th May, 2015

NoRMMA (Network of Research: Movies, Magazines, Audiences), University of Kent, UK

NoRMMA invites proposals for an interdisciplinary conference on non-traditional approaches to star studies research. The one-day event will be held at the University of Kent on May 29th, 2015.

Confirmed keynotes:

Dr Catherine Grant, University of Sussex

Dr Kieran Fenby-Hulse, Bath Spa University

The event will focus on ways to explore film studies research through non-traditional approaches. Examples include: performance, video essays, interpretative dance, creative fiction/non-fiction, poetry, music, and any kind of multimedia project. Through this symposium, we would like to explore the connections between scholarship and fandom, research and creativity, the benefits and disadvantages of exploring an (audio)visual art through (audio)visual means, and the development of the innovative and ever-emerging field of practice as research.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

– Star studies

– Film History

– Fan magazine research

– Audience reception studies

– Archival research

– Genre studies

– Aspects of film analysis

Potential contributors should submit abstracts of 300 words and a short biography to by Friday 27th February, 2015.
