Kampowa podmiotka w świecie fenomenów i przedmiotów retroaktywnych (na podstawie Alicji w Krainie Czarów )


The author argues that the heroine of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is a camp subject who moves around the world of camp phenomena. She draws attention to Alice’s monstrosity and the transformations of her body and the similarity with the protagonists of Ronald Firbank’s camp novels. She also points to the camp potential of girlhood, which is based on nonbinarity and the trying on of different identities and the testing of different social roles. The author also emphasizes the role of oscillation, which characterizes girlhood, and which camp researchers consider to be one of the essential elements of the definition of this category.
