In queer theory, few texts have spurred as much division and debate as Lee Edelman's 2004 polemic, No Future: Queer Theory and the Death Drive. This panel takes as its grounding premise one of this monograph's central arguments; namely, that queerness figures an irony that serves as a “corrosive force… [that] threatens, like a guillotine, to sever the genealogy that narrative syntax labors to affirm… [and] the continuity essential to the very logic of making [political] sense” (23-4). Upon its publication, Edelman's No Future drew reproach from queer theorists like Jack Halberstam, who sought to affirm queerness as a "form of negative knowing" (823) that projected a "bleak and angry" future politics (824).

Can the Other Speak? Productive Difficulties in Ethnic and Postcolonial Literature 

Our 2020 NeMLA panel emerges from Gayatri Spivak’s seminal question, “can the subaltern speak?” Following Spivak’s response to this question, we will investigate moments when subalterns cannot speak or have difficulty speaking. Our inquiry into these moments will build on and sharpen conversations about otherness with respect to literary texts and beyond.
