Journal Article — Editor’s Note: Re-Membering Anzaldúa — by Mohammad H. Tamdgidi
Having concluded the conference, and now the compilation of its proceedings via the present volume, we may wonder—while listening to Anzaldúa’s words in the epigraph— whether the conference did in fact chop Anzaldúa up into little fragments and tag each piece of her with a label? It is perhaps safe to say that we all did. However, having done so—a task which arises from an inescapably dialectical process of analyzing and synthesizing knowledge about any subject—we may now ﬁnd it fruitful to use the present collection to try to re-member Anzaldúa and the rich fragments of knowledge, feeling, and sensation about her life and works all contributors gave to and took from the extraordinarily rich scholarly and transformative gathering.
