Revisiting Star Studies : Cultures, Themes and Methods, Paperback / softback Book

Revisiting Star Studies : Cultures, Themes and Methods Paperback / softback

Edited by Sabrina Qiong Yu, Guy Austin


Is classical Hollywood stardom the last word on film stars?

How do film stars function in non-Hollywood contexts, such as Bollywood, East Asia and Latin America, and what new developments has screen stardom undergone in recent years, both in Hollywood and elsewhere?

Gathering together the most important new research on star studies, with case studies of stars from many different cultures, this diverse and dynamic collection looks at film stardom from new angles, challenging the received wisdom on the subject and raising important questions about image, performance, bodies, voices and fans in cultures across the globe.

From Hollywood to Bollywood, from China to Italy, and from Poland to Mexico, this collection revisits the definitions and origins of star studies, and points the way forward to new ways of approaching the field.
