PJR19(2)C Cover

Editors: Barry King, Rosser Johnson; Allison Oosterman (unthemed)

THIS ISSUE of Pacific Journalism Review engages with the theme of the dynamics of fame in a small country. In contrast to the dominant focus in the newly emergent field of Celebrity Studies on celebrity as a global phenomenon, the emphasis in this issue is on the interface between the global and the local; on questions of how the distinctiveness of national and local values fares when caught up in or of willingly imitating the circulation of global fame

Frontline editor: Wendy Bacon

This edition was a co-publication with the Centre for Performance Research at AUT University.
