What makes a subject? What imbues bodies with meaning? What makes them matter? And how does this matter become (and remain) intelligible in social discourse? How can we discuss abject, unthinkable, unliveable bodies that exist outside available discourses? Judith Butler raised some of these questions decades ago, yet many essentialist notions of personal subjectivity continue to rely on a firm grounding within corporeal binaries (male/female, straight/gay, healthy/ill, self/other, citizen/alien) that have been increasingly called into question by theorists, scholars, and policy makers.
