The celebrity culture is one of the most important phenomenon in the contemporary western societies. This culture operates in all the main social areas: spectacle, media, sport, arts, politics, cooking, etc. In this essay I take for granted the notion that celebrity is an appropriate object of study for sociology and I will offer a survey of the growing field of the sociology of celebrity. My review of the field will be broad but not necessarily exhaustive. After a brief historical foray, I will identify current trends in the field of sociology of celebrity and attempt to characterize the developing literature in ways that will be useful to interested scholars. Finally, I will suggest some new directions for scholars working in the field in the coming years.

Abstract

The celebrity culture is one of the most important phenomenon in the contemporary western societies. This culture operates in all the main social areas: spectacle, media, sport, arts, politics, cooking, etc. In this essay I take for granted the notion that celebrity is an appropriate object of study for sociology and I will offer a survey of the growing field of the sociology of celebrity. My review of the field will be broad but not necessarily exhaustive. After a brief historical foray, I will identify current trends in the field of sociology of celebrity and attempt to characterize the developing literature in ways that will be useful to interested scholars. Finally, I will suggest some new directions for scholars working in the field in the coming years.
