Abstract

Affective politics is negotiated throughout breast cancer diagnosis and treatment and has the potential to be performed and narrated queerly. Deploying S. Lochlann Jain’s conception of “elegiac politics,” this essay explores the queer affective terrain of breast cancer via Catherine Lord’s The Summer of Her Baldness and the television drama The L Word.
