This unit outlines the sociological analysis of celebrity, examining how we can see celebrity as a particular social form characteristic of modernity, and what makes it possible to speak of a 'celebrity society'. It reflects on the history of celebrity, the concept of court society, the production of celebrity and the economics of attention, para-social interaction, celebrity in sport, politics, diplomacy, management and business, the power relations characterizing celebrity society, and the trend lines in the future development of celebrity.
