Micro-activist Affordances meets Disidentification: ACSEXE+ and the Deconstruction of Hegemony

Quinn Valencourt

This article puts Arseli Dokumaci’s theory of micro-activist affordances in conversation with Jose Muñoz’s theory of disidentification in support of forms of disability activism that are more sustainable to a long-term deconstructive-hegemonic project. Using the Fédération de Québec pour le planning des naissances (FPQN)’s ACSEXE+ multimedia project as a case study, the present objective is to demonstrate how one can combat systems of marginalization that seek to degender and desexualize the disabled body.

Keywords: Micro-activist Affordances, Disidentification, Crip-theory, Critical Disability Theory
