The Celebrity Studies Journal Conference 2016 will be held at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. With its historic buildings, famous locations and lovely canals, this city will provide an excellent location for three days of conference debate as well as an evening programme of events. The University is located in the city center, a 15 minutes’ walk from Amsterdam Central Station (which is 15-20 minutes by train from Schiphol International Airport).

Here are some pictures of the conference venue, the Oudemanhuispoort, a building dating from 1602; it was once an almshouse for the elderly. It has a lovely courtyard and a secondhand book market in the passageways.
