Quare Atlantic?

Recommended Posts

Could someone explain the quare atlantic aff to me? What negatives are usually run against this type of affirmative as well?

If you know what queer theory is, it's queer theory for black people = slavery. 

 

If you don't know about queer theory, essentially the aff is an analysis of slavery, the middle passage specifically, and it discusses how the fluidity of the ocean is similar to that of the slaves sexuality and how that came to form modern subjectivity, or how that subjectivity is theorized. 

 

Really with affs like this, the main neg strategy is either

A.) Framework 

B.) A method vs. method debate

C.) All out "high theory" K's - Nietzsche, Baudrillard, DnG, Bataille, etc.

How would you use Baudrillard, DnG or Bataille against this aff? 

Tautology = bad

 

Teleology = bad

 

That binary doe #DnGlink

 

I'd run a Bataille Sacrifice K;  simply because I currently have an obsession with Bataille

1. I wasn't really suggesting those K's specifically, just giving examples.

 

 

2. Baudrillard - that shadowboxing the system bs, hyperreality, terrorism, security, etc.

 

3. DnG - mainly a method debate, understanding race bad, no root cause, etc.

 

4. Bataille - I really don't know
