The Trouble with Normal

The Trouble with Normal. After mentioning Michael Warner’s treatment on “Sex, Politics, and the Ethics of Queer Life” the other day, Queerscribe, Tim, and Steve have all purchased copies and are planning a weblog book club reading. Want to join us?

i’ve been off the eve sedgwick/sue ellen case/judith butler bandwagon for a few years now, so it’d take me a bit of time to get back in the groove. i’m a slow reader, too… but i’m up for it if you’re serious. i’ll warn you, though: i’m a full-blown, out-of-the-closet marxist, so if this is more foucault-esque post-structuralism (as it looks like it might be), MY COMMENTS MAY GET RATHER SHRILL.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on THE TROUBLE WITH NORMAL, Richard. Actually, I think you’d enjoy the reading – Michael Warner is definitely not part of the Butler-school of academic writing, instead writing in a clear, accessible manner that broadens his potential audience without sacrificing the depth of his ideas.
