Starting in February 2018, I will use this space to start a regular blog stream, titled “Essential Queer Questions.” This blog stream will analyse historical, near-present, and contemporary “queer” texts, posing an “essential” question pertaining to queer history, literature, and culture. Each entry will be brief: 3-4 paragraphs containing a synopsis of a text, histo-cultural relevance, and a succinct proposition of question and analysis. This project will build toward a larger constellation of questions, posed for queer scholarly, historical and activist cultures. In undertaking this project, I set out to define critical, often mundane, questions about the semantics and ideologies of queer life.
