Abstract: This JGLR special issue draws light about sexuality. The greater the difficulties we seem to encounter in trying to understand it. It aims to work against, by using the lens of queer theory to “giv[e] up notions of universality, truth and rigid identities. It is by foregrounding the ‘powerful feelings ‘that build the continuum between the old and the new – not on a linear temporality, but a meandering, crooked, going back and forth, up and down, inside and out way -- that we plan to make some contingent sense of queer sexuality ‘s ‘histories of the present ‘.
