  • Hope Against Hope: Queer Negativity, Black Feminist Theorizing, and
           Reproduction without Futurity
    • Abstract: <p>By James Bliss</p> The polemical thrust of the interventions called queer negativity has opened a debate on hope and hopelessness that has left little room for middle ground, much less an altogether different terrain. This essay tries to find a different place(lessness) from which to theorize queer negativity and, or as, Black feminist theorizing. That is, to find in the interventions called queer negativity—the critique of reproductive futurity, of the family, of the politics of hope—their prefigurations and alter-articulations within Black feminist theory. This is not to say that queer negativity simply reproduces Black feminism in whiteface, but that Black feminist theorizing anticipates or, rather, haunts the political imaginary ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Animal Companions in Sylvia Townsend Warner’s More-than-Marxist
    • Abstract: <p>By Mary Sanders Pollock</p> Sylvia Townsend Warner wrote about animals throughout her career: sometimes animals exercise agency in extraordinary ways, sometimes they are victims, occasionally they are metaphorical stand-ins for humans, and sometimes humans seem to be metaphors for animals. In most of the literary criticism devoted to Warner’s work, however, animal characters are scarcely mentioned.This absence is not surprising. First, animals in literary works have typically been read as stand-ins for human concerns or portrayed as objects in human transactions. In Thinking Animals, Kari Weil observes that animals “have been either invisible or locked in representations authored by humans, representations that moreover have justified their ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Queering Breast Cancer’s Affective Narratives: The Summer of Her
           Baldness and The L Word
    • Abstract: <p>By Emilia Nielsen</p> In “Cancer Butch,” an essay that critiques both breast cancer’s normative cultural politics and a lack of effective cancer prevention strategies, Sarah Lochlann Jain asserts that she is not calling for a war on cancer and its terrors “to the extent that anthropologists get to make such calls.” Instead, “the activist desire,” she says, “is to proliferate the possible identities of illness.” Here, Jain stresses that queer analysis of breast cancer can do more than make space for, or somehow make visible, queer subjectivities within dominant discourse. She believes it offers more than simply highlighting how, in the United States, lesbians still might be the most medically underserved group in society. ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Erotics of a Livable Life: Colonial Power and the Affective Work of
           Queer Desire in Monique Truong’s The Book of Salt
    • Abstract: <p>By Meg Wesling</p> Ariel Levy’s recent New Yorker profile of Edith Windsor, the plaintiff in the US Supreme Court case US v. Windsor, which declared unconstitutional the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), begs an urgent question about the politics of respectability and the visibility of desire in queer public and political life. “When [Roberta Kaplan, Windsor’s lawyer] took on Windsor’s case, pro bono, [Kaplan] made some rules for her,” Levy explains: “Kaplan instructed Windsor not to talk publicly about sex—a subject on which Windsor is exceptionally colorful and voluble” (54). While the New Yorker profile is relatively direct about the importance of sexual intimacy in Spyer and Windsor’s relationship, it is also direct about the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Feeling So Unusual: Cyndi Lauper and Queer Affect
    • Abstract: <p>By Nick Salvato</p> The 2010s have been furnishing pop star Cyndi Lauper with a Still So Unusual renaissance. Starring in a reality series of that name for WeTV, publishing a deliciously conversational memoir, earning a Tony award for Best Score for her musical contributions to Kinky Boots (the first such win in the category for a woman), and embarking on a tour to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of her massively popular debut album, She’s So Unusual, Lauper has also attracted new scholarly attention.1 In the 2013 essay “The Cyndi Lauper Affect: Bodies, Girlhood and Popular Culture,” four co-authors pursue a feminist experiment in collective biography, to which one’s memory of a densely textured affective response to Lauper’s ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Queering Shame and the Wound of Ethnicity
    • Abstract: <p>By Dennitza Gabrakova</p> “True shame cultures rely on external sanctions for good behavior, not as true guilt cultures do, on an internalized conviction of sin” (Benedict 223). Ruth Benedict’s The Chrysanthemum and the Sword, the foundational text on Japanese cultural anthropology, a text produced in the politically charged environment of the Japan-US military conflict and the subsequent engagement of the US with the postwar rebuilding of Japan, reveals a powerful dichotomy embedded in its core. This dichotomy, which consequentially embedded itself in the formulation of “Japan’s national culture” (Ryang), revolves around powerfully entangled visions of splitting and authenticity. Benedict’s division between shame culture and guilt culture ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Les enfants queer d’ Une saison dans la vie d’Emmanuel de
           Marie-Claire Blais
    • Abstract: <p>By Corrie Scott</p> L’enfant romanesque, emblème de l’innocence et force évocatrice remarquable, constitue une figure littéraire inépuisable. Exprimant simultanément l’utopie et son double maléfique, la nostalgie (Bruhm et Hurley xiii), l’enfant évoque souvent un pathos outrancier, et surtout, il représente un espace hautement idéologique. Denise Lemieux souligne que les exemples de personnages enfants ne manquent pas dans la littérature québécoise, particulièrement pendant la période précédant la Seconde Guerre mondiale (12). Pierre Chatillon va jusqu’à affirmer que les allusions à l’enfance dans la littérature québécoise se produisent « avec une continuité, une persistance qu’on peut à bon droit qualifier d’obsessionnelle » (2). ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • “Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid”: The “Dignity of
           Queer Shame”
    • Abstract: <p>By Margaret Morrison</p> When I came out to my father in the 1970s, he responded that “Some things are better left unsaid.” That blatant demand for my silence was a kind of symbolic violence, an attempt at censoring me or imagining the erasure of my sexuality and, from his position of power (as father, man, heterosexual, etc.), shutting me out for my differences. He rejected me for a sexual convention—albeit one deeply rooted in religious, state, and cultural law and tradition. As a “baby dyke,” I had already seemed to be in an entirely new world, but this “break” that brought shame accentuated the alienation I felt. Mine, as it turned out, was one of many kinds of experiences that activate shame in queers, especially among many young ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Falling in Love with Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick
    • Abstract: <p>By Jonathan A. Allan</p> “A Manual Approach to Mourning”In Touching Feeling, the late, the much mourned, the even more loved Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and her co-author, Adam Frank, ask, “What does it mean to fall in love with a writer?” (117). Looking back at this essay, I indulgently wonder if Sedgwick ever thought about this question in relation to herself: Will readers love me? Sedgwick, the poet, writes in Fat Art, Thin Art,I am struck by this moment in which Sedgwick ponders if she would be loved, especially when coupled with the question about falling in love with an author and its meaning. What is clear to me is that the more I read Sedgwick, and especially about Sedgwick, the more I realize how loved she was. Truth be told, I am ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: <p>By Dawne Mccance</p> “Philosophy’s Letters” is a course I have always wanted to teach, although and probably because it would be regarded by the institution as non-serious, superfluous to “the discipline” and to critical theory proper. For at least since Plato, inheritance of the classical Western tradition has distinguished letter-writing from serious thinking, relegating the former to an outcast, non-philosophical (non-critical) genre. Consider for example Kant’s 1796 “Of an Overlordly Tone Recently Adopted in Philosophy,” which opposes Plato the letter-writer to Plato the philosophical father, and which relegates letter-writing to the outside of philosophy, to the status of a “mys-tagogy” that contaminates logos with mythos, pure ... <a href="">Read More</a>
