Program Title: Palestinian/Israeli Conflict and its Queer Affects
Description: This paper conceptualizes queer beyond historical identities. Under my definition, "queer" is not simply sexual orientation but the affects of hard to name experiences, which exceed social sense and meaning. Queer affect is the remainder of desire that has passed through the social and returns in ways that are troubled and disturbing. When queer affect finds expression in the social world, it might be censored, cast out, and rendered strange, wrong or monstrous. Queer could be understood as the parts of us that resist the domestication of the sexual for social recognition, the parts of us that refuse to be colonized into affable, upright subjects.
