YugoQueer: Technologies of Spatialization, Temporalization and Universalization in Discursive Formation of Sexuality from the Late 19th Century until Today

Andrija Filipović

Abstract


The aim of this paper is twofold: on the one hand I wish to venture a hypothesis of three discursive formations in the production of queer sexualities spanning the period from the late 19th century until the beginning of the 21st century, and on the other to offer a systematic overview of the literature on queer sexualities in order to gain an insight about what has been done and what needs to be done in the field of queer studies and queer theory in relation to and in a dialogue with the field of Yugoslav studies. The ultimate aim is to demonstrate that what is thought to be an ahistorical given is anything but, that it is a complex product of a multiplicity of forces shaped through technologies of spatialization, temporalization and universalization. Or, in other words, that the current state of affairs can and should be changed through a genealogy of the present.
