Whether we think of ourselves as not interested in celebrity culture or voraciously consume the latest gossip, celebrity permeates so much of our everyday lives that we are inevitably touched by the ideas that circulate in it. Join Dr Kirsty Fairclough (University of Salford) for a relaxed and collaborative discussion as we examine why celebrity has so much to tell us about the wider values of the society in which we live.
In each event, we focus on one celebrity and explore the ideas and representations that circulate within them, with a focus on the continued importance of de-familiarising the everyday.
Next in the series is the genius of Kate Bush, an artist who has always refused to play by the expected rules of the industry and who has produced some of the most enduring music in British pop history. We’ll discuss Bush’s shape shifting brilliance, the ways in which she has always been led by her own artistic impulses, her style and her influence on so many subsequent musical artists.
