This seminar focuses on the formation of the Hollywood star system. The course will examine recent attempts to both theorize and historicize stardom, the relationship of this phenomenon to viewers, whether conceived as "fans," "audiences," or "spectators." It will also investigate the ways in which social differences (gender, race, sexuality, age) informed stardom and how celebrity culture intersected broader American issues such as consumerism, marketing, and citizenry.
