​Queer Past, Queer Present, Queer Future

"...the ongoing problem with queer, which is a problem Derrida predicted for deconstruction (from which queer gets much of its critical energy), is the ongoing threat of institutionalization that occurs when a critical term enters the academy, a taming of the critical energy, a domestication, a declawing and detoothing of its sharpest assets. Queer, if it names anything, names a critical impulse that can never, must never, settle."
