"Commodifying the Celebrity-Self: The Peculiar Emergence, Formation and Value of "Industrial" Agency in the Contemporary Attention Economy" by P David Marshall http://cmc-centre.com/keynote/<http://cmc-centre.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=8d968a451671b45aa780b5674&id=f78c886927&e=9b4b89800a>

Professor Marshall, a research professor and holding a personal chair in new media, communication and cultural studies at Deakin University, has published widely in two areas: the public personality/celebrity and new media culture. His books include Companion to Celebrity (December 2015), Celebrity and Power (1997; second edition, 2014), Fame Games (2000), Web Theory (2003), New Media Cultures (2004), and The Celebrity Culture Reader (2006)

His current writing and research has focused on some key areas in contemporary popular culture: he has been developing the idea of 'persona studies', where the presentation of the public self has expanded well beyond celebrity culture via particularly online forms: it now structures and patterns reputation and value across many professions and through many recreational and leisure pursuits. He has developed three related concepts to help explore this change in contemporary culture: presentational media, the intercommunication industry, and the personalization complex.  Forthcoming books include: Promotional Vistas (Palgrave, 2016), Contemporary Publics (2016), and Persona Studies:  Celebrity, Identity and the transformation of the public self (Palgrave), and Persona in formation (Minnesota, Forerunner Series, 2016).  He is also the founder of the Persona Studies Journal and M/C. His personal blog can be found at: www.pdavidmarshall.com<http://cmc-centre.us3.list-manage.com/track/click?u=8d968a451671b45aa780b5674&id=a949be32e6&e=9b4b89800a>
