NEW FROM THE EXPANDING FRONTIERS SERIES
“This queer Chicanx history project is everything such a project should be: a brilliant analysis with fresh and illuminating ideas and approaches, an unearthing of hidden trans stories, and an intellectual exploration of trans mestiz@ identity.”—Norma E. Cantú, Norine R. and T. Frank Murchison Professor of the Humanities at Trinity University
“Nepantla Squared is a welcome and refreshing contribution to intersectional trans, queer, and feminist histories of resistant gender. Linda Heidenreich provides a new depth of context to famous stories of anti-trans violence and resistance, like those of Jack Garland and Gwen Araujo, showing how these are stories about colonialism, capitalism, and neoliberal economic policy. Heidenreich’s writing is pleasurably readable and the book is insightful and original.”—Dean Spade, author of Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law

Interdisciplinary Approaches to Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality
Karen Leong and Andrea Smith, series editors
The Expanding Frontiers series promotes rigorous and interdisciplinary research that critically expands the field and purview of feminist, women’s, and gender studies. This book series builds upon the journal Frontiers and its commitment to “diverse and decisively interdisciplinary” publications –monographs as well as collaborations— that explore critical intersections of gender, race, sexuality, class, nation, and other dimensions. In particular, the series seeks to expand the knowledge generated by and about women, men, and transpeople of color, although it also embraces scholarship about women, men, and transpeople globally who are negotiating multiple and intersecting sites of affiliation, identity and commitment. The series welcomes scholarship regarding disability, cultural geography, comparative ethnic studies, critical race studies, indigenous cultures, transnational feminisms, expressive cultures and the arts, policy, and social movements. The series is particularly open to innovative and critical scholarship that is accessible across disciplines and fields, based in feminist epistemologies, and committed to social transformation research. The series is committed to supporting new scholarship in the field and is dedicated to guiding new authors through the publication process.
While the book series title evokes the continued expansion of knowledge in women’s and gender studies, the concept of “frontiers” also consciously calls into question how this knowledge about gender and sexuality is produced and acknowledges the contestations about what constitutes feminist, women’s, and gender studies. This dual meaning functions contrary to traditional conceptions of “frontiers” which, historically intertwined with empire and colonization, have been deployed to reproduce hegemonic structures of inequality. The Expanding Frontiers series speaks to the importance of intersectional analytical approaches and reflexivity in making sense of how women, gender, and sexuality are contingently constructed categories that have different material consequences for individuals based on their social locations.
James S. Bielo and Carrie M. Lane, series editors
The aim of this series is to publish teachable, empirically rich, and conceptually innovative books that contribute to the comparative anthropology of North America. The series will emphasize ethnographic approaches to contemporary subject matter grouped under five broad headings: Dynamics of Inequality; Transnational Motions; Movements of Change; Entertainment, Play, and Authority; and Post-Industrial Assemblages. The series seeks to be the most reliable destination for teaching and researching North American anthropology.
Sherrie Flick, series editor
Food is a basic human need, but in the twenty-first century it no longer seems so straightforward. At Table is a multidisciplinary series that seeks to reflect on and explore not just what we eat, but the process of eating—from how and where we obtain food, to food preparation, to our dining companions. Books in this series expand and enrich the ever-changing discussion of food politics, nutrition, the cultural and sociological significance of eating, sustainability, agriculture, and the business of food.
William R. Handley, series editor
Postwestern Horizons encourages scholarship which rethinks and reimagines traditional western scholarship by challenging predominant paradigms, including revisionist ones, and dislocating our sense of region. By moving past the West as a national place, process, and idea to more methodologically innovative, transnationally daring, and theoretically fertile horizons of scholarship, this series encourages new ways of conceiving cultural production and reception. Postwestern Horizons encompasses studies of visual culture, environmental studies, literature, history, film studies, and much more.
David Delgado Shorter and Randolph Lewis, series editors
The series explores and illuminates individual films produced by or about indigenous peoples around the globe. Each book in the series focuses on one film, addressing key issues raised by the film and demonstrating effective ways to interpret the film. The purpose of the series is to provide short, accessible, and affordable companions to major indigenous films that can be used in classrooms across a number of fields and by the general public.
Ryan E. Galt and Hannah Wittman, series editors
The aim of the Our Sustainable Futures series is to critically engage with emerging issues in social and ecological dimensions of sustainability, with a special emphasis on the intersection of agrarian studies and political ecology. The series will address new and interdisciplinary approaches to topics related to sustainable food and agricultural systems. These include dimensions of power, including knowledge production, social justice and inequality, cultural change, and public policy; and resource dimensions, including water, energy, soil and nutrient flows, pollutants, and agroecology. Volumes are written to appeal to professionals in the sciences, social sciences, and the humanities and to a larger audience, including teachers, students, researchers, agriculturalists, and the general public.

JOURNALS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS
One of the premier publications in the field of feminist and gender studies, Frontiers has distinguished itself for its diverse and decisively interdisciplinary publication agenda that explores the critical intersections among—to name a few dimensions—gender, race, sexuality, and transnationalism. Many landmark articles in the field have been published in Frontiers, in its 40+ year history, thus critically shaping the fields of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.
