Books By Author Deborah Jermyn
Women, Celebrity and Cultures of Ageing, Hardback (August 2015)
This book studies the relationship between women, ageing and celebrity. Focusing on an array of case studies and star/celebrity images, it aims to examine the powerful, contradictory and sometimes celebratory ways in which celebrity culture offers a crucial site for the contemporary and historical construction of discourses on ageing femininities.
Female Celebrity and Ageing, Hardback (September 2013)
'Female Celebrity and Ageing' interrogates the myriad ways in which celebrity culture constructs highly visible ideologies of femininity and ageing, and how ageing female celebrities have negotiated the media in a variety of industrial, historical and national contexts.
'Prime Suspect', Paperback (June 2010)
Deborah Jermyn's study of 'Prime Suspect' places the groundbreaking crime drama in the context of women detectives on screen and the institional sexism that confronted Jane Tennison and her real life counterparts. She provides a close analysis of Helen Mirren's performance and the key role of writer Lynda La Plante.
