“Race, Face, Ravage, and Lyrical Fat: Deleuze and Childhood Poverty”

Might we strike at the monolith of Poverty by using the blade of the sexual child?  Might we cut the face of the racial cliché of the child-in-peril-in-the-third-world?  We must be seduced . . . by a face . . . on the move—even by its motions in lyrical fat.  Bringing Deleuzian movement to bear on the face of childhood poverty—raced and gendered faces in literature, documentary, and film—stirs new matters.  Specifically, surprisingly, the body has sex with the notion of (its) face.  What does this mean?  How does it queer perspectives on poverty?
