Abstract in another language

This article examines postcritical and reparative readings of female same-sex narratives and proposes a diversification of reading practices. The approach toward f/f-narratives presented here shifts attention to queer literary visions by questioning the narrative of the “impossible woman” (Valerie Rohy) as well as the hegemony and omnipresence of the “hermeneutics of suspicion” (Paul Ricoeur) in literary and cultural studies. It aims at queering hierarchies of knowledge as well as practices of readings. Eventually, a postcritical reading of Gloria Anzaldúa’s Borderlands/La Frontera (1987) interrogates the text’s potential for creative openings and queer world-making by drawing on entanglements of past, present, and future.
