Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project is a literary analysis of the memoir, Dating Jesus: A story of Fundamentalism, Feminism, and the American Girl, by Susan Campbell. The analysis employs both formalist and poststructuralist techniques, as irony theory feminist theory, and critical discourse analysis are all used in the pursuit of further understanding the journey through the fundamentalist religious childhood experienced by Campbell. Through textual examination, the determination can be made that fundamentalism and feminism are incompatible ideologies which Campbell expresses through ironic remarks in order to indirectly criticize fundamentalism. Her memoir is meant as both a source of inspiration, as well as a warning to other young American women in the same position Campbell found herself in.
