              Area Impossible: The Geopolitics of Queer Studies
               

              Area Impossible: The Geopolitics of Queer Studies (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Arondekar, Anjali; Patel, Geeta H.

              Staging a much-needed conversation between two often-segregated fields, this issue addresses the promising future of queer and area studies as collaborative formations. Within queer studies, the turn to geopolitics has challenged the field's logics of time, space, and culture, wh...ich have routinely been rooted in the United States. For area studies, the focus on diaspora, forced migration, and other transnational trajectories has unmoored the geopolitical from the stability of nations as organizing concepts. The contributors to this issue seek to imagine and broker conversations between the two fields in which area becomes the form through which epistemologies of empire and market are critiqued. Histories of debt bondage; sexuality and indentured labor; Afro pessimism in African studies; trans theater facing obdurate transits; religion and the politics of Dalit modernity; the biopolitics of maiming: these are some of the conduits through which the authors approach a queer geopolitics.Contributors: Ashley Currier, Aliyah Khan, Keguro Macharia, Therese Migraine-George, Maya Mikdashi, Jasbir Puar, Lucinda Ramberg, Neferti Tadiar, Diana Taylor, Ronaldo Wilson
