Abstract

This general volume is structured in three sections: Latinx feminist and gen- der critique, women’s aging and reproductive health issues, and student cre- ative writing that explores manifestions of otherness. All three collections of texts are connected by a desire to question thresholds, both real and imagined. When does a controverial Spani la sh- ngu age insult shift to additional lay- ers of sociopolitical meaning? At what point does a fictional Dominican im- migrant’s masculinity transform from states of victimization to agency? How can the meaning of childbirth and femininity be reimagined outside the va- gina? And through what lens can the writer’s “I” be imagined as the “I” of an “other”? By design, feminist and queer inquiries are attracted to these intellectual portals and corporeal spaces that signify boundaries, passageways, and tran- sitions. e Th essays in this volume reflect these contours of exploration and altogether present a panoply of current g foen cu der sed m - ethods, goals, ways of knowing, and expressing. e fir Th st section of this collection highlights the richness and diversity of Chicanx and transnational Latinx feminist critique. Each of the first four essays engages the intersectional and e shiftviner g
