Literary Celebrity

 2014-15: Literary Celebrity – Practices of Fame and World Authorship in the Modern Period

In 2014-15 we discussed the topic of ‘Literary Celebrity’ from a wide number of different practical and theoretical angles. You can join the debate online, as we will post working papers from the events to this site and invite ongoing discussion and further relevant contributions.
