This week we are featuring titles from our New Directions in Critical Theory series. Today we have an excerpt from C. Heike Schotten’s Queer Terror: Life, Death, and Desire in the Settler Colony. In this book, C. Heike Schotten offers a critique of U.S. settler-colonial empire that draws on political, queer, and critical indigenous theory to reframe the concept of terrorism. She provides an anatomy of the War on Terror’s moralism, arguing for a new interpretation of biopolitics that is focused on sovereignty and desire rather than racism and biology.
