The Productive Power of Ambiguity: Rethinking Homosexuality through the Virtual and Developmental Systems Theory

Hypatia 20 (1):21-53 (2005)

Abstract
This paper juxtaposes Deleuze's notion of the virtual alongside Oyama's notion of a developmental system in order to explore the promises and perils of thinking bodily identity as indeterminate at a time when new technologies render bodily ambiguity increasingly productive of both economic profit and power relations.
