Author Info
Camille Paglia
As a professor of humanities at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Camille Paglia was known for her habit of dressing up as Hamlet for Halloween. A highly visible and outspoken presence on the lecture circuit, in print, and on television, Ms. Paglia has always shown a pronounced flair for the dramatic. She graduated with honors in English from the State University of New York, Binghamton in 1968, received her master's degree in philosophy from Yale in 1971, and her Ph.D. in 1974. A self-acknowledged fan of pop culture, Paglia has had a column in the online magazine Salon, where she answers readers' questions. She has confounded her critics by espousing views that are "feminist" (by her standards), conservative (by others' standards), loud, and libertarian--and always delivered in an aggressive, rapid-fire manner. An out lesbian, she has referred to herself as a "butch bottom."
