Abstract:

Shame has often been considered a threat to democratic politics, and was utilized to degrade and debase sex radicals and political marginals. But when and why have certain forms of shame been embraced by political activists? How has it been used to reverse entrenched power dynamics? This text brings together Ranciere's techniques of disrupting inequality and a queer curiosity for the performativity of shame to illuminate how 19th-century activists denaturalized conventional beliefs about sexuality and gender. This study fills a glaring absence in political theory by undertaking a genealogy of radical queer interventions that predate the 20th century.
