Abstract:

This article explores certain conditions that should be taken into consideration in exploring the possibilities of a queering of biblical discourse. Following Butler it suggests that queering can be seen as a “kind of gender performance” that “will enact and reveal the performativity of gender itself in a way that destabilizes the naturalized categories of identity and desire” (1990:177). I argue that as a per-formativity of gender, the queering of biblical discourse requires a shift from text to discourse, and must insist on dissent and disruption. doi: 10.7833/111-1-39
