This collection of work introduces a major shift in debates on sexuality: a shift away from discourse, identity, and signification, to a radical new conception of bodily materialism. Moving away from the established path known as queer theory, it suggests an alternative to Judith Butler's matter/representation binary. The book thus dares to ask how to think sexuality and sex outside the discursive and linguistic context that has come to dominate contemporary research in the social sciences and humanities. It is a provocative and often militant collection that explores a diverse range of themes including: the revisiting of the term ‘queer’; a rethinking of the sex–gender distinction as being implied in Queer Theory; an exploration of queer temporalities; the non/re-reading of the homosexual body/desire; and the becoming queer of the Gilles Deleuze/Felix Guattari philosophy. The book will be essential reading for anyone interested not only in Deleuze and Guattari's philosophy, but also in the fields of sexuality, gender, and feminist theory.
