Abstract

We live in a time of disruption. Populist leaders divide us. The gig economy
replaces stable class affiliations. Robots become both our professional competitors
and personal companions. Social media curate our public image. Gender fluidity
confuses the heterosexual matrix. Pandemics redefine our living spaces. Deep economic, societal, and cultural ruptures destabilize our sense of self. This disorder
of the things that define us causes fear of a loss of control over identity, but at
the same time this disorder also creates new opportunities to challenge and break
down entrenched structures of domination.
