Sick Celebrity: Making Sense of Fame and Illness

Celebrities may become iconic of specific illnesses (such as HIV/Aids or cancer) or causes of death (such as suicide or car crash). They may also become the face of illness through cinematic portrayals. Significant research has interrogated celebrity death, fan mourning, and collective memory. This panel seeks to advance research on fame, celebrity, death, and fandom by specifically addressing celebrity physical and mental illness.

We welcome proposals on topics such as:

  •  Cinematic representations of illness that interrogate fame/celebrity
  • Celebrity as the face of an illness, whether by having or advocating on behalf of the condition
  •  Discourses of celebrity illness/treatment impacting audiences
  •  Fan reactions to celebrity illness/treatment
  • Celebrity bodies or minds as ill, unhealthy, or pathological

Please submit abstracts of 250-450 words to Spring Duvall, spring.duvall@salem.edu  by Friday, August 21.

Opportunity for Charitable Giving to Support Health Communication Research

At the division business meeting in June 213, Dave Buller announced that the Kundrat Family, in memory and honor of the late Amanda Lee Kundrat (a previous Thesis of the Year Award winner in the division), has generously endowed the ICA and NCA's joint award, the Amanda L. Kundrat Health Communication Thesis of the Year (see http://www.icahdq.org/fundraising/funds.asp?fund=DIV_HEALTH for more information).

The division hopes to build this endowment for the future by seeking charitable donations to the fund. There are three ways to donate. Option one is for members to send a check, along with a note that identifies the Amanda L. Kundrat Health Communication Thesis of the Year as the intended fund, to the following address: International Communication Association c/o Michael Haley 1500 21st Street, NW Washington, DC 20036

Option 2 is to make use of the following link/button on the ICA home page: http://www.icahdq.org/fundraising/#FUNDS Next, click the link that says "click here to make a donation" in the upper right-hand corner of the site. Select "Amanda L. Kundrat Health Communication of the Year Award" and specify the type of gift you wish to make. Option 3 is to donate as part of the process of renewing your ICA membership - the funds are listed on the detail form as you check out of the renewal registration process.
