  • Description: Puar's intervention is uncomfortable for disability research insofar as she challenges the methods wherein the sector of inquiry reproduces disability as an oppressed id and an aggrieved topic enacted via "wounded attachments" (Puar 2012, 157). Puar's project of rethinking disability is to maneuver from incapacity to debility, not to be able to "disavow the crucial political positive aspects enabled by disability activists globally, but to ask a deconstruction of what capacity and capacity mean, affective and in any other case, and to push for a broader politics of debility that destabilizes the seamless production of abled-our bodies in relation to incapacity" (166). In doing so, Puar asks: "How would our political panorama rework if it actively decentered the sustained reproduction and proliferation of the grieving subject, opening instead towards an affective politics, attentive to ecologies of sensation and switchpoints of bodily capacities, to habituations and unhabituations, to tendencies, multiple temporalities, and becomings?" (157). Puar thus requires a non-anthropocentric affective politics that strikes us away from exceptional aggrieved human subjects whose damage might be transformed into cultural capital. In something akin to creating constellations, Puar moves us away from pondering by means of binaries of abled/disabled and reframes this relationship in terms of debility and capability to attend to changes inside capitalism.
