In this piece by a collective of scholars, activists, and artists, the authors clarify what they mean by “Transnational Hispaniola” and why they believe this conceptualization of the island complements the work done by social movements combating sexism, racism, and homophobia. They assess the responses to their efforts so far — by people in the Dominican Republic and in the United States — to reflect critically upon the promises and limitations of this work. They end by explaining their goals for the future challenges as they plan a third (but hopefully not final) conference, this time in Haiti.
