Calling oneself queer requires ‘undertaking particular performative acts of experimentation, self-perception, and filiation.’ (Eve Kosofsky-Sedgwick)
Working on the text to accompany the book is something I was unsure how to approach. During the last crit, I was advised to consider a personal approach. To write from personal experience rather than focus too heavily on producing an academic essay for the book.
This advice loosened my thinking about how to approach the task, although I was keen on including the research that guided the project. As a result, I produced a number of pieces of text which are available on request.
