Abstract: Summer camps are an important part of U.S culture. 11 million children attend summer camp in the U.S.A each year. Yet, little work has been done to explore the cultural phenomenon of summer camp. At summer camps, there are many implicit and explicit norms. These norms, in turn, have larger implications for understanding children's development of self and social behaviours. I study summer camp culture at Camp Delaware by interviewing former campers (often referred to as ex-campers) about their experiences. I investigate how summer camp culture both reconstructs and reifies social norms. Summer camps are an under-researched, yet highly important part of U.S culture. It is important we begin to understand how children function in these spaces, so we can replicate the positive effects and work to overcome the negative outcomes of such a unique locale.

Abstract: Camp, a style of performance in queer subcultures, is being re-imagined in the online video portal of YouTube. Online vloggers – mostly young and queer – have infused camp with a neoliberal sense of individuality, emotional authenticity and personal development, thereby challenging historical understandings of camp as wholly ironic and disengaged or politically charged. These shifts in self-presentation are reflected in statements made by performers in interviews and in their videos.

Abstract: California’s many wildfires routinely make regional, national, and sometimes even international news. Despite this attention by newspapers and other media outlets, little coverage is given to the fact that for many wildfires, a substantial proportion of the personnel doing the tough work of cutting fire lines are state prison inmates. Today, in a political era of increasingly punitive measures to control crime and deviance—one in which incarceration is becoming a first, and a not a last, resort—California’s prison fire camps appear to stand out as an important exception to a larger trend. As such, the CCP offers rich grounds to contribute to scholarship that asks in what ways macro-narratives of punishment in the U.S. have overstated the coherence and scope of changes that occurred in the last quarter of the twentieth century, and how to account for elements that do not fit larger apparent trends. In my dissertation project I use the past and present nature of the CCP, as well as its effects on offenders’ future lives, to deepen our understanding of the diverse nature of punishment in the U.S., and how elements that appear anomalous fit into the larger systems that shape the public management of crime and those convicted of felonies.
