It's about finding alternatives - to conventional understandings of success in a heteronormative, capitalist society, to academic disciplines that confirm what is already known according to approved methods of knowing, and to cultural criticism that claims to break new ground but cleaves to conventional archives. The author proposes »low theory« as a mode of thinking and writing that operates at many different levels at once. Low theory is derived from eccentric archives. It runs the risk of not being taken seriously. It entails a willingness to fail and to lose one's way, to pursue difficult questions about complicity, and to find counterintuitive forms of resistance. Halberstam looks for the unexpected and subversive in popular culture, avant-garde performance, and queer art.
