This co-edited collection explores contemporary research studies, performative writing, poetry, Latina/o studies, and gender studies fields through the lens of Gloria Anzaldua's theories, methods, and concepts. These concepts include borderlands theories, nepantla, mestiza consciousness, the Coyolxauhqui Imperative, conocimiento, and spirituality. Utilizing different methodologies and approaches-testimonio, performative writing, and interpretive, rhetorical, and critical methodologies-the contributors' chapters provide original research on contexts including healing and pain, woundedness, identity, Chicana and black feminisms, and experiences in academia.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Such beautiful, powerful, moving words! I love the multiplicity of Anzalduan theories, methods, perspectives, and praxes found within this book. Risking the personal, editors and contributors bring forward new insights to support and sustain us during these trying times. They demonstrate the versatility of Anzalduan theories and perspectives, opening new directions in communication studies and other fields. La Gloria lives on, building bridges changing lives, and assisting us as we work to transform the world. -- AnaLouise Keating, Professor and Director of the Multicultural Women's and Gender Studies Doctoral Program, Texas Woman's University
With remarkable breadth, stunning vulnerability, and incisive analyses, this collection animates the continued force and malleability of Gloria Anzaldua's writings. The commitment to praxis and art, activism and intellect across the book is a testament both to Anzaldua and the authors, as it is also an exemplar for the contemporary practice of coalitional and transformative scholarship. -- Lisa A. Flores, University of Colorado
Editors Leandra Hinojosa Hernandez and Robert Gutierrez-Perez have crafted an innovative and necessary intervention in the field of Communication Studies that insists on the epistemological possibilities of those who live in the physical and psychological borderlands. Speaking through a mestizaje of genres and modes of storytelling, and passionately grounded in the theories of Chicana feminist scholar Gloria E. Anzaldua, the pieces in this collection show readers that it is through speaking and writing the viscera-- the flesh--that possibilities for healing and transformation emerge. A necessary book for scholars in Communication Studies, Chicanx Studies, Women's and Gender Studies, and more. -- Larissa Mercado-Lopez, California State University, Fresno
This important collection of essays brings much needed perspectives to the communication discipline through art, praxis, and theory of Anzalduan ideas and philosophies. The artistry, writings, and illustrations in this book feature important Anzalduan concepts like borderlands, nepantla, testimonios, conocimiento, ambiguities, intersectionalities, and critical pedagogies. -- Stacey Sowards, University of Texas at El Paso
