Notes towards a queer::eco::poetics by Tamiko Beyer, on Doveglion.com
There is much here to like, question, admire, explore. . .
Excerpt: A queer::eco::poetics holds on simultaneously to the outsider status of queerness while working to disrupt the distinctions between outside and in, natural and unnatural, normal and freakish. A poetics of the porous.
A queer::eco::poetics rides the transformative power of the erotic while resisting and interrupting tired gendered portrayals of earth-mother-goddess nature. In a queer::eco::poetics gender and eros shift and transform continually. Sex and the erotic are integral to, but do not solely define, a queer::eco::poetics.
A queer::eco::poetics is not satisfied with language that props up borders. It is in search of, and in its search creates its own ((sub)alter(n)ed) language. A queer::eco::poetics looks to the leakages in/between words and meaning in search of new ways of knowing.
