Module overview

The module explores issues of stardom in relation to debates on star persona, performance, iconography and cinematography as well issues of gender and ethnicity. The emphasis will be on historical context throughout, highlighting within each case study and through the module as a whole, the ways in which stars and their contexts relate to each other. A linking strand of the module is provided by various concepts of the ‘classical’ in constructing star iconographies along with the relationship between stars and the representation of history itself.
