Sample text

For Butler, reading suggests the possibility of exposing failure, those places where the text, in this case the costume, mannerisms, posture or gestures, make-up, delivery, of the drag artist, does not achieve the naturalized effect, and belief is established with that necessary degree of instantaneity. Yet, as I have proposed, the manifestation of the performer is, itself, an act of reading, of translation and interpretation, which takes time. This time taken, in determining what asserts realness and thus resists reading, is nothing other than the time of reading, of assembly and delineation, accretion and in-habitation.

The language of critique is effective … to the extent to which it overcomes the given grounds of opposition and opens up a space of translation: a place of hybridity … […] The progressive reading is crucially determined by the adversarial or agonistic situation itself; it is effective because it uses the subversive messy mask of camouflage and does not come like a pure avenging angel speaking the truth of a radical historicity and pure oppositionality. Homi K. Bhabha, ‘The Commitment to Theory’ (1994, 23–4, 25, 26) 02 pages 001-172 20 3/2/03 10:10 Page 20 Readings What is to be done?

There is the matter of orientation in the face of a resistance to theory in the name of reading, a readingtowards-socialism, or the matter of learning how to read that accent of deviation which determines the reading of others. There is, furthermore, the situation of reading and its orientation to that which apparently prohibits or proscribes reading, yet which, nonetheless, situates itself as a reading between the lines or against the grain, whether what is being spoken of is political discourse or the drag performance.
