Stories for techno-bodies. Post-identity politics and queer and transgender practices

After the AIDS crisis and the absorption of identity politics into normalisation mechanisms, there has been an emergence of new forms of activism and intervention through deviant uses of identity production technologies. Electronic culture, the expansion of neoliberalism and changing geopolitical relations have transformed the conditions of activism and led to the possible creation of micro-narratives that require new strategies of resistance. By supplanting masculine/feminine and hetero/homosexual dialectics, postcolonial, queer and transgender movements also question the dominant historiography and its forms of visibility. At the same time, they cast doubt on differential historiographies and run the risk of producing other invisibilities.
