"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
