Publication – ‘Representing Camp: Constructing Macaroni Masculinity in Eighteenth-Century Visual Satire’, ABO: Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830

I’m super excited that my article, ‘Representing Camp: Constructing Macaroni Masculinity in Eighteenth-Century Visual Satire’, has been published in Ula Klein and Emily M. N. Kugler’s special issue of ABO: Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830 on eighteenth-century camp.

The article asks how ‘Camp,’ as defined in Sontag’s 1964 essay, ‘Notes on Camp,’ might provide a valuable framework for the analysis of late eighteenth-century satirical prints, specifically those featuring images of the so-called ‘macaroni.’ Discussing a number of satirical prints and contemporary writings on the macaroni, the article reads them against Sontag’s text in order to establish its utility as a critical framework for understanding the images’ complex relationship of content, form, and function.

Huge thanks to Emily & Ula for putting together such a great special issue, and for being such great editors! Check out the whole issue here.
