dc.description.abstractMy dissertation analyzes non-normative erotics on the seventeenth century stage. Changing norms and discourses around sex collide with an emerging chronobiopolitical governmentality, or a disciplining of the time of life. In this context, discourses, bodies and intimacies were increasingly choreographed to an emerging national temporality under a burgeoning centralized state. My project traces the disjointed desires that fail to be properly attuned to this sovereign temporality. Inhabiting a middle ground between speech and silence, "inarticulate erotics" do not cohere under the dominant forms of discourse, yet are expressed through their difference- in a slowness or fastness relative to the normative pace of life. Taking into account "temporal orientations" means considering the ways that slowness or haste can feel erotic or the ways that chrononormativity creates monolithic expectations of gender. In their divergence from the exigencies of a chrono-normative pace, these inarticulate erotics diversify an approach to the history of sexuality and shine a new light on ways of thinking about theater in seventeenth century France.en_US
