In his influential Palimpsests: Literature in the Second Degree, Gérard Genette proposed terms to refer to the relationship among texts: intertextuality, paratextuality, metatextuality, architextuality, and hypertextuality. Connections among texts are not new to medieval scholars, as is evident on volumes about sources and analogues; yet, textual networks might be more productively explored against trade routes, religious and political invasions, and ideological impositions. How are textual transpositions, which Genette defines as “serious transformation[s]” (212), anchored in cultural clashes and exchanges?

Since the turn of the twenty-first century, scholars and educators working in interdisciplinary fields connected to multilingualism, have been developing new conceptual theory and applied pedagogy. These areas include history, culture, linguistics, literary and media phenomena, as well as technological and pedagogical approaches to multilingualism, and the study of multilingual communities in the United States. Immigration, globalization, the mechanization of language diversity, translation tools, social media, and universal streaming platforms have contributed to the rapid progression of multilingualism.

On December 1, 1952, World War II veteran Christine Jorgensen became the first American to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Her long-standing legacy has helped reignite a fundamental debate on gender, sex, and recognition. Indeed, as historian Joanne Meyerowitz notes in How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the United States (2009), the redefinition of gender identity, “as opposed to biological sex,” was the ultimate product of a long process that “emerged from the medical discourse of the mid-1950s and as a result of the post-Jorgensen phenomenon.” Since then, the non-binary understanding of gender has featured prominently in an ever-expanding debate on American society as it struggled to achieve inclusiveness, freedom, and equality.

Participation both depends on and produces agency. Therefore, it is always embedded in power structures and power remains unequally distributed. Though empires are long gone, neo-colonial structures of domination continue to exploit the so-called Global South, to privilege Eurocentric knowledge traditions over non- Eurocentric knowledge, and to exclude racialized subjects or people and communities from erstwhile colonized countries from power positions. For decades, postcolonial subjects have worked against imperial forms of oppression. They continuously labor to create space for local and hitherto marginalized world views and experiences. Processes of (self-)translation produce spaces of articulation and enable participation.
