Women, Camp, and Popular Culture : Serious Excess, Hardback Book

Women, Camp, and Popular Culture : Serious Excess Hardback


This innovative study claims camp as a critical, yet pleasurable strategy for women's engagement with contemporary popular culture as exemplified by 30 Rock or Lady Gaga.

In detailed analyses of lesbian cinema, postfeminist TV, and popular music, the book offers a novel take on its subject.

It defines camp as a unique mode of detached attachment, which builds on affective intensity and emotional investment, while strongly encouraging a critical edge.
