The Political Abuse of Rights

 

Dr. Puar spoke about her book Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, in which she discussed the emergence of what she termed homonationalism--the co-production of gay and lesbian rights, consumer entitlements, circuits of mobility, and livable lives with the simultaneous delimitation of the mobility and rights of racialized bodies, in particular those bodies racialized as "terrorist." For instance, after 11/9 there appeared an anti-Muslim sentiment where anxiety about terrorist bodies was apparent.
