No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive

Notes

Argues that the child, understood as innocence in need of protection, represents the possibility of the future against which the queer is positioned as the embodiment of a relentlessly narcissistic, antisocial, and future-negating drive. Boldly insists that the efficacy of queerness lies in its very willingness to embrace this refusal of the social and political order.
