"A performative understanding of discursive practices challenges the representationalist belief in the power of words to represent

preexisting things. Performativity, properly construed, is not an invitation to turn everything (including material bodies) into words; on the

contrary, performativity is precisely a contestation of the excessive power granted to language to determine what is real. Hence, in ironic

contrast to the misconception that would equate performativity with a form of linguistic monism that takes language to be the stuff of

reality, performativity is actually a contestation of the unexamined habits of mind that grant language and other forms of representation

more power in determining our ontologies than they deserve."

Barad looks at the performance of discourse in the relocation of material beyond the representation and in the mediated, inbetween,

interactive space of "intra-agency"
