Nature's Queer Performativity

Dublin Core

Description

Through a range of vivid examples drawn from scientific research (from social amoebas to lightening), Barad lays out how nature itself is queer, how it models queer communication through a performative rather than represnetative mode. Barad expands our understanding of what communication is and how matter itself can be seen as communicating.
