    Gypsy Feminism

    Intersectional Politics, Alliances, Gender and Queer Activism

    By Laura Corradi

    Emotions as Commodities

    Capitalism, Consumption and Authenticity

    Queer Economies of Dirt, Dust and Patina

    Edited by Ingrid Hotz-Davies, Franziska Bergmann, Georg Vogt

    "Camp" is often associated with glamour, surfaces and an ostentatious display of chic, but as these authors argue, there is an underside to it that has often gone unnoticed: camp’s simultaneous investment in dirt, vulgarity, the discarded and rejected, the abject. This book explores how camp…
