Celebrity, Performance and Ageing

by on December 9, 2011

Birkbeck hosted a fascinating seminar today on celebrity and ageing. This looked at various figures in the public eye (war reporters, actors and film directors) and their engagement with ageing in their professional lives.

Copies of the abstracts of the various talks can be found here.

Some of the papers from the seminar will appear in a special issue of the journal Celebrity Studies in Spring 2012 on the subject of female celebrity and ageing.
