Abstract

The article presents the author's view on relationship between Marxism and queer studies. Author says that "totalization" is the basic concept for Marxism study and Queer studies have originated from capitalization in the U.S. and is less dominant. He suggests that argument of Lee Edelman, professor in the English Department at Tufts University, for identification of queer with negative energy is correct.
