Queer – Genealogie eines problematischen Begriffs Queer—Genealogy of a troublemaking term  [cached]
Birgit Müller
querelles-net , 2002,
Abstract: Jagoses Einführung in die Queer Theory ist in erster Linie eine Genealogie des Begriffs queer‘. über den historischen Kontext von Homophilenbewegung, Homobefreiungsbewegung und lesbischem Feminismus in den USA fragt sie nach den Entstehungsbedingungen, die Queer Theory hervorgebracht haben und zeichnet die Kontinuit ten und Brüche in der Bedeutungsgeschichte von queer nach. Sie setzt sich mit den poststrukturalistischen Wurzeln von Queer Theory auseinander und diskutiert das emanzipatorische Potential ihrer theoretischen und politischen Aspekte. Die deutsche Ausgabe erg nzt das Werk um ein umfangreiches Nachwort, in dem u. a. auf die Rezeption von Queer Theory in der BRD eingegangen wird. Jagoses’s introduction to queer theory presents primarily a genealogy of the term ‘queer’. Ranging from the historical context of homophile movements and gay-liberation movements to lesbian feminism in the United States Jagose investigates the conditions which have produced Queer Theory and traces the continuities and discontinuities of the semiotic history of the term ‘queer’. She discusses the poststructural roots of queer theory and discusses the emancipatory potential of its theoretical and political aspects. An extensive epilogue with notes on the reception of Queer Theory in the FRG has been added to the German edition.
Queer Theory and the Study of Religion  [PDF]
Claudia Schippert
REVER : Revista de Estudos da Religi?o , 2005,
Abstract: Queer Theory has become an important theoretical approach that focuses on the centrality of sexuality in modern conceptions of the self. This article reviews central ideas of queer theoretical work, notes areas in religious studies where they have been and continue to be explored, and summarizes some of the theory's promises and points of conflict.
The Afterlives of Queer Theory  [cached]
Michael O'Rourke
continent. , 2011,
Abstract: Were we to accept recent commentators, Queer Theory, is: over, passé, moribund, stagnant; or, at worst, dead, its time and its power to wrench frames having come and gone. Almost since it began we have been hearing about the death(s) of Queer Theory. Yet, despite the rumors of extinction, Queer Theory continues to tenaciously hold on to life, to affirm the promise of the future, even despite the dominant influence of Lee Edelman’s book No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive which encourages us to fuck the future and its coercive politics which are, he tells us, embodied in the fascist face of the Child. With each new book, conference, seminar series, each new masters program, we hear (yet again) that Queer Theory is over. Some argue that the unstoppable train of queer theory came to a halt in the late nineties having been swallowed up by its own fashionability. It had become, contrary to its own anti-assimilationist rhetoric, fashionable, very much included, rather than being the outlaw, it wanted to be. But the books and articles still continue to appear, the conferences continue to be held. And, if it were true that Queer Theory has been assimilated completely, become sedimented, completely domesticated (or at least capable of being domesticated) then it really would be over. Nobody would be reading any more for we would already know what was to come.
Que há de t o queer na teoria queer por-vir? What’s So Queer About the Queer Theory To-Come? Qu’y a-t-il de tant queer dans la théorie queer à-venir?
Michael O’Rourke
Revista Crítica de Ciências Sociais , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/rccs.870
Abstract: O artigo prop e-se desembrulhar uma série de termos-chave que preocuparam Jacques Derrida após a chamada viragem político-ético-religiosa deste autor, desde um texto como Force of Law (1989) até Voyous (2004): termos como “auto-imunidade”, “messianicidade sem messianismo”, a “chegan a” e a “democracia por-vir”, entre outros. Irei debru ar-me sobre os últimos textos de Derrida, em particular sobre a obra Voyous – em minha opini o, uma importante carta fundadora de uma teoria queer a considerar para o futuro –, bem como sobre o recente número da revista Social Text intitulado “Que há de queer nos estudos queer hoje?” e ainda sobre os trabalhos mais recentes de Judith Butler (sobretudo a obra de 2005 Giving an Account of Oneself – “Prestando contas de si”). Proponho, assim, que a palavra “auto-imuniza o”, um termo do léxico derridiano que se reveste de alguma novidade e ambiguidade (e muitas vezes é entendido negativamente) constitui um útil ponto de partida para se falar do indeterminável, monstruoso e até vadio futuro dos estudos queer, ou daquilo a que chamo a teoria queer por-vir. This paper unpacks a number of the key terms which have preoccupied Jacques Derrida, after his so-called religio-ethico-political turn, from Force of Law (1989) to Voyous (2004): ‘autoimmunity’, ‘messianicity without messianism’, ‘arrivance’ and ‘democracy to-come’ among others. I will be discussing Derrida’s later texts especially Voyous/Rogues, which I will argue ought to become an important charter for a queer theory futurally envisaged, alongside the recent Social Text issue ‘What’s Queer about Queer Studies Now?’ (edited by David L. Eng, Judith Halberstam and José E. Mu oz, 2005) and Judith Butler’s more recent work (especially Giving an Account of Oneself, 2005). I suggest that autoimmunization, a somewhat new and ambiguous (and often negatively understood) term in the Derridean lexicon, offers a useful starting point for thinking about the undeterminable, monstrous, even roguish future of queer studies or what I call the queer theory to-come. Le présent article propose d’éclairer une série de termes-clé qui préoccupait Jacques Derrida après ce qui a été appelé le virage politico-éthico-religieux de cet auteur, à partir d’un texte comme La force de la Loi (1989) jusqu’à Voyous (2004): entre autres, des termes comme “auto-immunité”, “messianicité sans messianisme”, “arrivage” et “démocratie à-venir”. Je vais me pencher sur les derniers textes de Derrida, en particulier sur Voyous, qui, à mon avis, constitue une importante charte fondatrice d’une théorie queer à considér
AG Queer Studies (Hg.): Verqueerte Verh ltnisse. Intersektionale, konomiekritische und strategische Interventionen. Hamburg: M nnerschwarm Verlag 2009.  [cached]
Heinz-Jürgen Vo?
querelles-net , 2009,
Abstract: Der vorliegende Band enth lt Beitr ge zu den aktuell intensiv geführten Debatten um die Notwendigkeit einer deutlichen Positionierung von Queer Theorie zu Theorien der konomiekritik und Intersektionalit t. Dabei werden historische und aktuelle Beispiele herangezogen. Exzellent und besonders hervorzuheben sind die Aufs tze von Jin Haritaworn – ein anti-rassistischer Beitrag, der sich fundiert in aktuelle politische Queer-Auseinandersetzungen einmischt – sowie von Jo Bucher und Angelika G res, die an einem zeitgeschichtlichen Beispiel queerende Momente des Widerstands herausarbeiten. Wie der vor acht Jahren erschienene erste Band der AG Queer Studies an der Hamburger Universit t ist auch dieser für den deutschsprachigen Raum hochaktuell und w rmstens zu empfehlen. The volume at hand contains articles on the current and intense debate over the necessity of queer theory’s clear position in relation to theories of economic critique and intersectionality. It does so using historical and current examples. Essays deserving of special note include an article by Jin Haritaworn that engages in current queer political discussions and an article by Jo Bucher and Angelika G res that highlights queer moments of resistance using a contemporary example. As was the case with the first volume of the AG Queer Studies at Hamburg University, published eight years ago, this volume is extremely current for the German-language market and is highly recommended.
Implications of Queer Theory for the Study of Religion and Gender: Entering the Third Decade  [cached]
Claudia Schippert
Religion and Gender , 2011,
Abstract: This essay explores the conceptual and contextual shifts in queer theoretical work as it is entering into its third decade of articulation. The essay reviews important recent themes in, and examines implications of, queer theoretical scholarship for the study of religion and gender. I suggest that among the implications are a (more) undisciplined study of religion (and secularism) that takes seriously shifts resulting from transnational and diasporic queer scholarship, shifts in conceptions of agency and resistance resulting from analyses and critique of homonormative positions, and can critically intervene in homonationalism and Islamophobia.
From here to queer? Pitfalls and possibilities
Clarke,Victoria; Peel,Elizabeth;
Ex aequo , 2009,
Abstract: in this article we consider the relationship between lesbian and gay psychology, latterly known as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (lgbtq) psychology and queer theory. we signal some ways that the field could become more intersectional by, for example, taking gender seriously, before turning our attention to queer theory. we explore some of the critiques of incorporating queer theory more fully into the field. in conclusion, we suggest that a tentative queering of lgbtq psychology will provide fruitful possibilities for the future of the field.
New Queer Cinema: Before and After  [PDF]
Nejat Ulusay
Fe Dergi : Feminist Ele?tiri , 2011,
Abstract: This work aims to focus on ‘New Queer Cinema’, a movement which emerged as part of the independent filmmaking in the USA of the 1990s, as well as represented by the films of few British directors. This work, which offers a brief history on the representation of homosexuality in Western cinema, also dwells on queer theory and queer film studies. After dealing with the directors of the ‘New Queer Cinema’ and their films, the work focuses on the aftermath of the movement.

Perturbation theory of von Neumann Entropy  [PDF]
Xiao-yu Chen
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1088/1674-1056/19/4/040308
Abstract: In quantum information theory, von Neumann entropy plays an important role. The entropies can be obtained analytically only for a few states. In continuous variable system, even evaluating entropy numerically is not an easy task since the dimension is infinite. We develop the perturbation theory systematically for calculating von Neumann entropy of non-degenerate systems as well as degenerate systems. The result turns out to be a practical way of the expansion calculation of von Neumann entropy.
