    Title:  Múltiples intervenciones (des)del otro lado: Frances Negrón-Muntaner, la trans-nación puertorriqueña y el género del documental
    Abstract:   This essay examines Puerto Rican cinematographer Frances Negrón-Muntaner's film Brincando el charco: Portrait of a Puerto Rican (1994). It argues that by destabilizing the traditional definition of cinematic modalities such as the fiction film and the documentary, the film serves to challenge a monolithic nationalist discourse based on the constitution of a Puerto Rican subjectivity that is predominantly Hispanic, heterosexual, white, and exclusive of the diaspora.

    Title:  Learning from the Death of Gwen Araujo? -Transphobic Racial Subordination and Queer Latina Survival in the Twenty-First Century
    Abstract:   On 4 October 2002, Gwen Araujo, a young transgender Latina, was brutally murdered by three men she considered her friends. Unlike the death of Matthew Shepard, Gwen's death attracted very little media attention. In an attempt to account for the erasure of queers of color within the United States, this paper examines the intersections of racism and sexism in the media and the legal system. It argues that the intersections of racism and sexism produce a particularly toxic climate for queers of color, especially queers who cross gender lines. It concludes with a brief examination of resistance on the part of Araujo's family and of regional transgender activist/education organizations.
