Just found out the publication of “(Extra)Ordinary? The Concept of Authenticity in Celebrity & Fan Studies” (2018) https://brill.com/view/title/35655. This special edited collection features my book chapter based on a 2013 conference presentation in Lisbon, Portugal – filled with memories now.
While the literary value of the book chapters has huge significance in the scholarly fields of celebrity studies and fans studies, the inspirations and impacts of research, writing and media engagements leave me with a great sense of wonder and awe – had so many memorable moments with my father and loved ones since I first spoke on the topic in my post-doc journey.
Thank you all for being a part of this intense and rewarding journey. I look forward to your views on the latest publications and having further conversations soon.
