Please join us for this virtual roundtable discussion where our panellists explore how celebrities in Asia responded to the Covid-19 pandemic. They draw on examples from China, India, Hong Kong and Singapore. They ask, was their input an example of democratisation, resistance, personal branding, or fan communion? Did some celebrities misread the room or provide affective responses for ordinary people to gather around? Did celebrities in Asia speak for or against the imagined nation state or offer new transnational relationships? Q&A follows the discussion.
