Seeing the world as white and Western disallows seeing much else ‘elsewhere’. My point of origin, then, for thinking about democracy is the body. The body, or our bodies, locate humanity itself. It is from this place of the body that desire, sex, reproduction, labor, creativity, are derived. It is the body’s claim on each of us that connects us one to another. So I follow human bodies to ‘elsewheres’ to find a polyversal humanity rather than locate the promise of universality within any one location.
