Taking Notes on Camp

December 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

We like homework, of a certain kind.  If it makes us think about our favorite art in a new way, we love it.  If it is totally off the mark, we love to hate it.  And if it questions ideas about gender and sexuality, we are all over it.  For our homework this break, we are working on Susan Sontag’s Notes on Camp.  The essay is about Camp (yes, with a capital ‘C’) as an aesthetic.

The best news about this essay: it might make watching Twilight an academic experience.
