Dyke

This assignment functions as a take-home exam designed to test your knowledge of the ways that heteronormativity
functions as a governing relation in society, and how it intersects with other systemic relations of power including settler colonialism, white supremacy (in states and societies such as Canada and the US), and capitalism. You are required to
read Elaina Martin’s personal memoir entitled DYKE and then draw on at least 6-course readings meaningfully to respond
to ALL of the following questions:
• Define heteronormativity and discuss the impact of this ruling relation on Martin throughout her life.
• How does heteronormativity intersect with at least two other relations of power?
• Elaina Martin is a marginalized subject as a result of a variety of social locations that she occupies. What coping
strategies does Martin employ in her struggle to navigate her difference and carve out a livable life? What are the
personal and social costs of not being recognized as fitting within the “charmed circle” (Rubin 1984)?
• How do you think that life narratives or telling one’s story fit into efforts to resist heteronormativity and the relations
of power intersecting with sex-gender-sexuality?
• What is your personal response to Martin’s memoir?
• What questions would you ask her if you have the chance?
Do not describe the book. DESCRIBE Hetronormativity use course readings that can demonstrate
