Summary
Challenges traditional Hollywood-derived models of star studiesIs 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. Key features: features cutting-edge research on stardom and fandom from a range of different cultures, contributed by a diverse and international range of scholars; generates new critical models that address non-Hollywood forms of stardom, as well as under-researched areas of stardom in Hollywood itself; revisits the definitions of stars and star studies that are previously defined by the study of Hollywood stardom, then points the way forward to new ways of approaching the field; looks at stars/stardom within a new local/translocal model, to overcome the Hollywood-centrism inherent to the existing national/transnational model; brings into light various types of previously unacknowledged star texts; Employs a dynamic inter-disciplinary approach
