In The Queer Life of Things: Performance, Affect, and the More-Than-Human, Anne M. Harris and Stacy Holman Jones offer readers a series of chapters united in their fascination with the animals, plants, and things with whom we share and compose our lives. Harris and Holman Jones pick up and follow bread-crumb trails of new materialist, posthumanist, affect, performance, and feminist theoretics as they explore contemporary life and world-making. They use queer theory to break open and go beyond reason, searching for ethical and artful ways of sustaining ourselves, our multi-species companions, and our planet.
