Destroy, discipline, defeat: Toward another queer reading of Lamentations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article lays out a framework for another queer reading of the book of Lamentations -- flirting with issues of destruction, discipline and the unwillingness to accept defeat -- and in the process imagine how to do queer reading differently. I engage with the pleasurable and crass sides of 'the sexual' in the text as well as in the encounter of text with reader.
