What is the role of literature in creating new ways of being in the world? If many conceptualizations of political freedom terminate in teleologically- determined emancipation, and thus separate the possibility of freedom from the conditions of social life, how can literary form, by contrast, support invention in the face of the unknown?

This area focus will address the linguistic intersections between queer theory, speciesism, and critical animal studies. Speciesist language creates and naturalizes the species hierarchy of "human"/"animal." Heteronormative and gender normative language creates and naturalizes the categories of "male"/"female", "straight"/"gay", and "normal"/"queer." Both queer studies and critical animal studies provide inclusive tools for linguists to deconstruct dichotomous thinking. Much anti-speciesist thought is informed by the destabilization that queer theory provides, and queer theory itself would contest the privileged binary construction of human/animal.
