Hemmings, Clare (2007) Rescuing lesbian camp. Journal of lesbian studies, 11 (1/2). pp. 159-166. ISSN 1089-4160
This paper explores the limits of lesbian camp as it is currently conceived within Lesbian Studies. I argue, in what I hope is a rather circuitous way, that a reliance on repudiative models of identity formation fixes gender as complementary and sexuality as oppositional, irrespective of intention. In this context, I imagine instead what it would take to theorize femininity itself as camp, and femme subjects as ideal for working this through at the level of praxis.
