Performativity: Pasts, Presents, and Futures
Keywords:queer studies, performativity, editorial
The contributions to this volume of Whatever. A Transdisciplinary Journal of Queer Theories and studies all engage with a seminal issue of queer theories and practices: performativity. By framing the keywords of the call for papers in the plural, and by including not only the presents and futures of performativity, but also its pasts, CIRQUE hoped to facilitate connections between queer studies and areas of the humanities and social sciences which are normally perceived by queer scholars as alien and remote. We are very glad that this challenge has been taken up, and hope that this will be the first step of a productive and exhilarating dialogue.
