The introduction locates the book’s argument at the productive intersection of queer studies, film theory, and Deleuzian philosophy, clarifying where each field stood in the U.S. academy by the 1990s. From there, the introduction reviews seven theoretical tenets from which all of the book’s arguments derive, explaining such key Deleuzian concepts as desiring-production, deterritorialization, and minor cinema along the way and deriving concrete illustrations from different films than those treated in later chapters. Following some words about the origins, historical context, and disciplinary orientations of the book’s argument, the introduction ends with an overview of each subsequent chapter.
