Opacities: An Introduction

This introduction proposes opacity as a generative and necessary frame for contemporary feminist and queer politics. Theorized by the Martinican philosopher and poet Édouard Glissant, opacity can be understood as an incalculable alterity that is at once the relational ontology of the world, an ethical demand, a form of political legitimation, and a poetics.
