Titel: After Queer Theory
Sub titel: The Limits of Sexual Politics
'After Queer Theory: The Limits of Sexual Politics' makes the scandalous claim that queer discourse has run its course, its project made obsolete by the full elaboration of its own logic. Far from signalling the demise of anti-homophobic criticism, however, the end of queer offers an occasion to rethink the relation between sexuality and politics. Via a critical return to Marxism and psychoanalysis (Freud and Lacan), After Queer Theory argues that the way to implant sexuality in the field of political antagonism is paradoxically to abandon the exhausted project of sexuality's politicization. 'After Queer Theory' features chapters on recent queer theory (Ahmed, Sedgwick, Puar, Edelman); on anti-homophobic Marxism; on sexuality and universalism; on the work of Guy Hocquenghem; on the clinical approach to male homosexuality in Lacanian psychoanalysis; and on the post-queer thematic of immortality.
