‘Ruvalcaba offers a concrete vision of queer resistance, one that it is not just a movement for gender liberation but also a transnational quest to decolonize the present. A must read for anyone grappling with queer politics in the Americas.’
Holly Lewis, author of The Politics of Everybody
‘A profound work that will illuminate both how, through the figure of the queer, Latin Americanists should consider central concepts such as the nation, citizenship, and identity; and how queer theorists outside Latin America might envision a more thorough understanding of histories of the queer.’
Ben. Sifuentes-Jáuregui, author of The Avowal of Difference: Queer Latino American Narratives
'Ruvalcaba’s significant contribution to queer studies is a survey of the field’s more contemporary scholarship produced in Latin America and abroad … very useful for scholars looking to expand the exchanges between translation and queer theories.'
'There is much to be learned from Translating the Queer about socio-sexual processes in Latin America and the always-frayed fabric of the heterosexist project.'
David William Foster, Anthropological Forum
