AbstractUnthinking Mastery examines the routes of knowledge production for their ongoing and sometimes even unconscious reliance on masterful ways of thinking. In assessing discourse from an inevitable ‘inside position’, Singh's non-masterful attempt follows a strategy of sensibility. As a practice of ‘vulnerable readings’ of a selected literature this diverts from masterful routines through attentiveness to the emerging slippages in interpretations. This admittance of an ambivalence uncovers how masterful structures of knowing contribute to the obscuring of particular bodies, spaces, and things. Her engagement not only touches on feminist and queer theories but also provides a powerful interconnection between environmental and postcolonial studies.
