This chapter discusses concept of body drift and its three key theorists —Judith Butler, Katherine Hayles, and Donna Haraway—whose writings provide the vocabulary so desperately required to understand the contingencies, complexities, and intermediations of body drift. Taken together, their writings provide a coherent, critical, and eloquent account of body drift: its hauntologies, complexities, and intermediations. Their theorizations of the body in its complicated inflections with the languages of gender, sexuality, science, ideology, power, and politics are never reducible to description but are actually part of the discourse of the body—not as ideological prefiguration but in the subtler sense that their theoretical imaginations are directly invested in the fate of the body.
