Translocalities/Translocalidades is a path-breaking collection of essays on Latin American, Caribbean, and United States–based Latina feminisms and their multiple translations and cross-pollinations. The contributors come from countries throughout the Américas and are based in diverse disciplines, including media studies, literature, Chicana/o studies, and political science. Together, they advocate a hemispheric politics based on the knowledge that today, many sorts of Latin/o-americanidades—Afro, queer, indigenous, feminist, and so on—are constructed through processes of translocation. Latinidad in the South, North and Caribbean "middle" of the Américas, is constituted out of the intersections of the intensified cross-border, transcultural, and translocal flows that characterize contemporary transmigration throughout the hemisphere, from La Paz to Buenos Aires to Chicago and back again. Rather than immigrating and assimilating, many people in the Latin/a Américas increasingly move back and forth between localities, between historically situated and culturally specific, though increasingly porous, places, across multiple borders, and not just between nations. The contributors deem these multidirectional crossings and movements, and the positionalities engendered, translocalities/translocalidades.

Review:

"This ambitious, compelling volume is a brilliant example of the thing it aims to study: the challenges, methods, and achievements of transnational women's activism across the Américas. Based on years of collaboration among twenty-two scholars from a dozen countries and as many disciplines, Translocalities/Translocalidades explores the translocal as political project and episteme, unfolding in interactions among indigenous, lesbian, women of color, Afrolatin@, and Third World feminist movements, through endless acts of translation, self-translation, and mediation. A joy to read."
(Mary Louise Pratt, author of Imperial Eyes: Travel Writing and Transculturation)

"Translocalities/Translocalidades answers an urgent need to examine the diverse levels of Latin/a Américas feminisms throughout the Américas. The teasing out of conflicts over power, representation, authority, and authorship; community organizations and local actors; and the state and the political economy is central to our understanding of the complex power dynamics at play in the hemispheric travels of feminisms." (Frances R. Aparicio, coeditor of Musical Migrations: Transnationalism and Cultural Hybridity in Latin/o America)

"One of the triumphs of this collection of essays is its breadth and depth regarding the notions of translation, translocation and the intersections of feminism, activism and language in and across many of the cultures within Latin America, and U.S. Latina/o diasporic communities." (Ilana Dann Luna Ameriquests)

"[T]his collection is a brilliant contribution to feminist teaching and research on the constantly changing and fluid crossings of people, capital, cultures, and technologies. It is a beautifully presented set of narratives, theories, and visions that translate the differently lived and contested meanings of 'Latin/a' feminisms. It is grounded in the Americas but will resonate profoundly with all people engaged in feminist transnational communities and networks for social and political transformation."  (Wendy Harcourt Hispanic American Historical Review 2016-08-01)
