1988: 44) The rethinking of the concept of hegemony in post-Gramscian theories has led to a rethinking of structures of domination, such that there has been a shift of focus from the primacy accorded to economic relations to an analysis of heterogeneous interlocking power systems. Feminist theorizing has been vital for this kind of reassessment (Lauretis 1987; Barrett 1991; Silverman 1992; Smith 1998; Butler 1993; Habermann 2008). Anne McClintock (1995) provides an astute insight into what has subsequently been called a non-additive, articulatory theory of intersectionality (see Femina Politica 2005).

In this context, an interesting debate has unfolded over the issue of who qualifies as subaltern and how to avoid the inflationary use of this political term (Spivak 1999; Castro Varela and Dhawan 2005a, 2007; Dhawan 2007).  The postcolonial legal theorist Ratna Kapur (2005) uses the term ‘sexual subaltern’ as broad theoretical category that brings together a range of sexual minorities, even as she warns that it is neither a homogenized nor a stable category. Furthermore, she cautions that the location of the sexual subaltern in postcolonial contexts is complex and at times contradictory and that sexual subalternity is not invoked exclusively as an identity of resistance to dominant sexual categories.

Ludwig, for example, unpacks the operation of heteronormative power, Woltersdorff explores the libidinal investment in domination, Castro Varela and Dhawan analyse how counter-hegemonic strategies simultaneously reproduce and depart from hegemonic discourses and Engel and Kolářová in their chapters examine how difference becomes appropriated rather than excluded in order to form wider hegemonic alliances. By analyzing the concrete ways in which heteronormative power operates, it becomes obvious that heteronormativity does not refer exclusively to regimes of sex, gender and sexuality; racist, (neo)colonial, neoliberal, ableist and classist regimes are inextricably entangled.
