In Mad for Foucault (2010) and Are the Lips a Grave (2013) Lynne Huffer shatters a number of long-standing assumptions in queer theory and charts new directions for this field. In particular, Huffer calls on scholars to pursue a feminist-attuned relational ‘ethics of eros’ that challenges the anti-social stance of Leo Bersani and Lee Edelman. Despite Huffer's vital insights, the impact of her work has yet to be fully appreciated. This panel aims to fill that gap by exploring the question: what does queer theory look like after Mad for Foucault?
