Postmodernism and Notes on Camp

I will continue teaching the module on Postmodernism at University for the Creative Arts. Hurrah! This term I hope to further the discussion on one of my research interests, namely issues of gender and identity in the Postmodern Age.

Here’s some words of wisdom to guide us through 2013:

‘Greta Garbo, and Monroe
Deitrich and DiMaggio
Marlon Brando, Jimmy Dean
On the cover of a magazine

Grace Kelly; Harlow, Jean
Picture of a beauty queen
Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire
Ginger Rodgers, dance on air

They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face
Lauren, Katherine, Lana too
Bette Davis, we love you

Ladies with an attitude
Fellows that were in the mood
Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it
Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it’
