Example text

Such a reading of ‘becoming’ in Butler is juxtaposed to Deleuze and Guattari’s multiplicity which they argue is ‘the very condition of minoritarian micro-politics and is propelled by multiple and simultaneous becomings’ (Cohen and Ramlow 2006: para. 13). Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of becoming (1987, 1996) takes matter, and corporeality, as a site of transformation and constant, internal differentiation. The self is always becoming different from itself. Within Deleuze and Guattari’s thought, the human body is an effect of its own movements and processes of connection.

We are disturbed by a lack of generosity within Deleuze Studies towards Butlerian inspired queer theory; a sentiment somewhat evident in the editors’ drive to develop a post-Butlerian queer theory founded upon a ‘new image of thought outside that of representation: a material thinking-image which will be able to provide the term “queer” with an active (that is, productive and positive) rather than a reactive force (queer as the negative, the anti-straight, the nonnormative, an exclusively deconstructive practice)’.

Deleuze and Guattari suggest that we do not begin as fixed subjects who then have to know a fixed world. Rather, they argue that there is experience and from this experience we form an image of ourselves as distinct subjects. All life is a series of ‘foldings’. Every cell, every organism (and the human body) are folds of the milieu of life. Our bodies are the becoming-actual of all our virtual possibility, a limit set in chaos that is a resolution of infinite speeds. Subjectivity is an effect of our processes of becoming.
