New York City, NY (May 23, 2017) – The Centre for Media and Celebrity Studies (CMCS), in association with CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, is hosting an exclusive conference about celebrity academics on August 31-September 1 in New York City. The conference features keynotes Andrew Mendelson, P. David Marshall, and Tim Harper who will speak on the significance of celebrity studies and current trends in celebrity journalism, photojournalism, and journalism education in New York City.

Andrew L. Mendelson is currently the associate dean and a professor at the CUNY School of Journalism. Previously he was a faculty member in the department of journalism at Temple University in Philadelphia for nearly 15 years, serving as department chair for the last eight. In his current role, he serves as the school’s chief academic officer, overseeing faculty, curriculum and student affairs. His opening talk titled Everyone’s a Critic: The Role of the Media Scholar in the Age of Instant and Pervasive Commenting will take place on August 31, 2017.

P. David Marshall is 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. He has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences as well as interviewed for articles and many broadcast media programs from CNN, Fox News, BBC, and the ABC/Radio National to the Sydney Morning Herald, New York Times and the Toronto Star. His keynote talk titled Pandemic Mediatized Identity: Professional Personas as Public Intellectuals in the Social Media and “Presentational Media” Era will highlight latest trends in celebrity and persona studies on September 1, 2017.

Timothy Harper is a longtime journalist and author who has written a dozen books and helped many other people write and publish their books. Tim has also written more than 1,000 articles, including essays and op-eds, in publications as varied as Atlantic Monthly and airline magazines. He has taught at NYU's and Columbia's graduate schools of journalism, and is now a visiting professor and writing coach at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. A lawyer, he is a member of the First Amendment Committee for the American Association of Journalists and Authors, for whom he leads panel discussions and workshops on reporting, writing and publishing. His featured workshop Thoughtful Branding for Your Thinking will be a significant contribution to celebrity journalism in New York City.
