Queer and Universal

(p.123) Coda
Indifference to Difference

Madhavi Menon

University of Minnesota Press

Universalism is the political thing that makes particulars fail to cohere; universalism as the idea that spurs longing across borders; universalism as the notion that allows intellectual ferment: these are the domains of the queer. The universalism of noncohering particulars is queer, then, because it shows up the futility of using partition as a bulwark against the migration of peoples, ideas, and desires. A queer universalism does not belong anywhere, and it is owned by no one.
