> We would like to invite chapter proposals for a new collection of essays entitled Childhood & Celebritywhich is being co-edited by Jane O’Connor and John Mercer at Birmingham City University. The proposed book aims to explore the phenomenon of childhood celebrity by reflecting on the cultural and social aspects of children’s fame in a variety of international contexts. The idea is to bridge the gap between Childhood Studies and Cultural Studies in this area and bring together scholars from different disciplines who are writing about/researching different aspects of child fame, performance and stardom, both in Western culture and internationally. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who may be able to contribute a chapter based on child stardom from an International perspective.

Culture Lab @ ASC.

The Culture Lab is a forum for researchers at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania committed to exploring, enriching, and elucidating the contours of culture and communication. We are interested in culture as it is, as it takes shape, and as it is remembered. We are interested, in other words, in culture anywhere that it exists.
