Abstract or Description

Afterword to special issue Borderlands Journal, 'Jacques Rancière on the Shores of Queer Theory', the philosopher compared to Bette Davies.

What can we learn from the chapters that precede this conclusion? Or rather put it this way: what have they shown us, given us to see? I don't mean this in the sense of having demanded and then had, or not had, an epiphany; nor in the sense of requiring the miraculous, a conversion or an overturning. Yet the miraculous would indeed be if we had been taught nothing at all yet, after our reading, had set off somewhere else, turned aside or simply drifted off shore. Off shore in the breeze that blows across queer theory's shores, a zephyr named Rancière?
