Claudia Milian’s Latining America: Black-Brown Passages and the Coloring of Latino/a Studies (2012) resonates far beyond that field. Each of its four sections (“Southern Latinities,” “Passing Latinities,” “Indigent Latinities,” and “Disorienting Latinities”) also changes how we understand “the South.” This roundtable explores the book's interventions in those four areas.
