Though more prominently known as a performance studies scholar and queer and critical race theorist, José Esteban Muñoz is cast in this essay as a theorist of the aesthetic. Informed by the ways that Muñoz offers a worldly pedagogy and critical practice that takes place in and makes learning places of theaters and clubs as much as classrooms and conferences, and following Jean-Luc Nancy—as does Muñoz—to understand “world” here as referring to that which “is said in every saying,” this essay considers how Muñoz’s aesthetic theory encourages promiscuity among fields of knowledge.
