AbstractThis TDG project enhances the active learning, critical thinking and sociocultural relevance of the course through discussion of recent and real cases of celebrity creation and endorsement of fashion, luxury and lifestyle brands in various media industries across Asia, particularly in Greater China, Hong Kong and South Korea. Students will read a selected case study of various interviews with communication or entertainment industry practitioners. All case studies are developed based on real examples of celebrity participation in both traditional or new communication campaigns. After reading each case study, the students will discuss its implications and evaluate the social, cultural and economic dynamics of celebrity cultures. These untold inside stories of celebrity endorsement or celebrity advocacy will stimulate students’ interest in rethinking the economic and cultural implications of the phenomenon of stardom and facilitate classroom interaction. This project will improve the pedagogical approach by providing a common experience for active learning, thus facilitating a higher level of sociocultural relevance and more engaging discussion and participation in class. GDBU1855/GDSS1855 Celebrity and Entertainment Business is a GE course open to students from the School of Business or the School of Communication. In this course, students will learn about the use of celebrity in marketing and creative industries (e.g., film, advertising or digital entertainment) as well as its impact, including the construction of self- identity, celebrity-driven consumer behavior, gender and race, stereotypes, and idol worship. Figures of interest to be studied include film figures; music, sports, cultural and political celebrities; and online bloggers. This is fundamentally a preliminary course designed to help students think more critically about the intersection of entertainment and civic engagement in the new media era. It also aims to strengthen students’ understanding of the culture of celebrity on the societal values and choices in a Chinese culture. Culturally relevant case studies are currently unavailable in the market but are instrumental for this course. Real-life examples will enhance students’ understanding of communication and marketing theories in specific cultural contexts. It is expected that this pedagogical approach will stimulate active classroom discussion and thus critical reasoning of the topics. A well- coordinated and type-setted e-book will be produced and reserved in the COMS departmental office and HKBU Library and shared by other HKBU students who are interested in exploring the topic from interdisciplinary perspectives. This project is granted by the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning (Teaching Development Grant) at Hong Kong Baptist University (Ref No: TDG/1314/11).
