Formatted abstract
This article examines scholarly works published before and after Fame Games (2000) to investigate whether the development of Australian celebrity studies was one of the things that happened to Australian cultural studies. That book, written by Graeme Turner, P. David Marshall and Frances Bonner, observed the significance of an Australian celebrity's international profile to their national media coverage. Now, in an intellectual variant, Australian celebrity scholars disproportionately use foreign stars or Australians with international profiles to illustrate their arguments, with the exigencies of academic publishing providing one explanation. The article draws inter alia on Turner's several publications in the field in an attempt to discern whether there is an Australian inflection to celebrity studies or whether Australian scholars have been so significant in the international development of this subset of cultural studies that there is neither call nor space for a distinctively Australian approach.
