Music & Camp

This collection of essays provides the first in-depth examination of camp as it relates to a wide variety of twentieth and twenty-first century music and musical performances. Located at the convergence of popular and queer musicology, the book provides new research into camp’s presence, techniques, discourses, and potential meanings across a broad spectrum of musical genres, including: musical theatre, classical music, film music, opera, instrumental music, the Broadway musical, rock, pop, hip-hop, and Christmas carols. This significant contribution to the field of camp studies investigates why and how music has served as an expressive and political vehicle for both the aesthetic characteristics and the receptive modes that have been associated with camp throughout twentieth and twenty-first-century culture.

Endorsements

"This welcome anthology opens the field through a rich variety of contexts, methods and perspectives, with a number of essays destined to become 'camp classics.'" —Caryl Flinn, University of Michigan

"From lip-syncing to queer sing-alongs, Gilbert and Sullivan to Poulenc, Johann Strauss to Janelle Monaé, this resplendent romp through music's camp hotbed illumines the expressive, social, and political stakes of style." —Nadine Hubbs, author of Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music
