Canon and Identity: Thoughts on Hyphenated Anarchisms

Hyphenated forms of anarchism are the yin and yang.

By James J. Miller

The topic of canon is more than a discussion revolving around texts, historical figures, or someones status in relation to that canon. This paper argues that the canon itself includes a way of applying and understanding ones identity in the canon. I explore the ways that identities are negotiated within the canon and seek an understanding of the workings of the canon. Taking the relations between anarchism, queer theory, feminism, and religion as texts, this paper analyzes the canon and suggests directions for making the canon more anarchist by understanding the canon and its relationship to identity through the folklore of myth.
