After Queer Theory makes the provocative claim that queer theory has run its course, made obsolete by the elaboration of its own logic within capitalism. James Penney argues that far from signalling the end of anti-homophobic criticism, however, the end of queer presents the occasion to rethink the relation between sexuality and politics. He shows how to wrest sexuality from the dead end of identity politics, and how to open up an emancipatory struggle beyond the reach of capitalism’s powers of commodification.
