“Commodifying the Celebrity-Self: The Peculiar Emergence, Formation and
Value of “Industrial” Agency in the Contemporary Attention Economy” by P
David Marshall

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*

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:
