"Transitioning, following the theoretical work of Dora Silva Santana, “is our movement along that space of possibilities that produces embodied knowledge. It is moving across and along the waters, the imposed limits of gender” (2017: 183). Transitioning, then, can be understood as a continual practice of improvisation, imagination, discovery, and movement. Afro-Latinx studies, as an emergent field, takes up the key analytics of race, ethnicity, Indigeneity, culture, colonialism and migration. In a way, Afro-Latinx studies has transed Latinx studies but what might it mean to trans Afro-Latinx studies by focusing on transgender epistemologies, embodiments, and transgender acts of improvisation and imagination? This conversation gathers trans* Afro-Latinx scholars and activists to address the following questions: How does transitioning inform, nuance, expand, or critique Afro-Latinx studies and/or Afro-Latinx identity? And, what types of transitions do Afro-Latinx communities need to take in order for trans Afro-Latinx kin to live gloriously?"
