Sentir abatido, regresivo y maquínico: Teoría queer y el giro afectivo

Resumen

La impliación de la teoría queer con el giro afectivo, particularmente en su divergencia con las discusiones previas preocupadas con el desarrollo histórico y la crítica postestructuralista de la identidad sexual, ha generado tres cepas diferenciadas, aunque relacionadas de trabajos del afecto: la negatividad queer, la temporalidad queer y lo queer como cuerpo maquínico. Cada una de las cepas ha planteado diferentes desafíos y potenciales analíticos tanto para la teoría queer como para la teoría del afecto, que nombro respectivamente como sentir abatido, sentir regresivo y sentir maquínico. Estos tres tipos de trabajos describen las varias formas de socialidad y niveles de intensidad con las que el cuerpo queer es afectado y traen tres contribuciones particulares a la teoría queer, incluyendo una profundización en la comprensión de los procesos culturales, desplazando la epistemología a la escala temporal, y ampliando la ontología sexual más allá de su privilegio espacial de la experiencia euro-americana.
