This week, The Annex discusses the sociology of celebrity with Kerry O. Ferris from Northern Illinois University. We discuss the nature of celebrity, how it is acquired, and how it can be used. Ferris is the author of Stargazing: Celebrity, Fame, and Social Interaction (2011, Routledge) and “The Sociology of Celebrity” in Sociology Compass.
