Anita Ekberg and the construction of a contested celebrity

Project: Research

Description

Here I look into how Anita Ekberg was constructed as a star in Hollywood in the 1950s, and how she came to embody ideas about the Swedish sex symbol. In this celebrity study I compare the reception and writings about Ekberg in Swedish and American press, and in future work I will also study Ekberg's time in Italy.
