Deleuze and queer theory
Edinburgh University Press, Apr 15, 2009 - Literary Criticism - 189 pages
A major paradigm shift in debates on sexuality, Deleuze and Queer Theorymarks a shift away from discourse on identity and signification and a move toward a radical new conception of bodily materialism. For too long queer theory has been dominated by the work of Judith Butler and a focus on performativity. In these essays, a critical engagement with the work of Deleuze and Guattari shape a new queer theory, one that revisits the very term of "queer," rethinks the sex-gender distinction as implied in queer theory, explores queer temporalities, and considers the non/rereading of the homosexual body/desire and the becoming-queer of the Deleuze Guattari philosophy.
