The queer life of things: performance, affect, and the more-than-human

Harris, Anne M., author; Holman Jones, Stacy Linn, 1966- author

'The Queer Life of Things' takes up new materialism and posthumanism as a queer intervention into the devaluing and degradation of some human, animal, and plant lives and ways of living. Through a sustained and vibrant encounter with things that matter, this book offers readers an affective and more-than-human mode of activism for the 21st century. In The Queer Life of Things: Performance, Affect, and the More-Than-Human, Anne M. Harris and Stacy Holman Jones offer readers a series of chapters united in their fascination with the animals, plants, and things with whom we share and compose our lives. Harris and Holman Jones pick up and follow bread-crumb trails of new materialist, posthumanist, affect, performance, and feminist theoretics as they explore contemporary life and world-making. They use queer theory to break open and go beyond reason, searching for ethical and artful ways of sustaining ourselves, our multi-species companions, and our planet
