The study of stars opens up many avenues to explore issues of representation; from considerations of race and ethnicity to examinations of class, gender, sexuality and national identity. Although stars frequently become extraordinary icons, they are also ordinary individuals, reflecting national and cultural characteristics. This playlist includes particular stars that are useful to consider in relation to these issues.
