JoAnn Wypijewski writes in a recent issue of the Nation, for her "Carnal Knowledge" column:

"If the dead bodies of Dhaka seem remote as a concern for sexual politics, that merely reveals how shallow those politics often are, and indeed how limited are the familiar, compartmentalized politics of the progressive brand."

And:

"The dead of Dhaka ought to prompt a deeper consideration by everyone of the punishments of capital, and of the relationship between desire, repression and power."

Hear, hear.

"...the relationship between desire, repression and power."

This is my dissertation, in a nutshell. But in a totally different context (still feminist). Thanks for linking this piece.
