In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

vii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are very pleased to see this project come to fruition. Adjusting the Lens has been many years in the making and we are grateful for all the suggestions, critiques, and encouragement we have received along the way. We are especially grateful to the contributing authors for their patience and perseverance during this long editorial process, and for their commitment to this project. The seed for this collaborative volume was planted when we and Ana Rosa Duarte Duarte collaborated on a panel at the “Geographical Imaginaries and Hispanic Film” conference in New Orleans in 2009. In 2011 Laurel C. Smith joined us in Merida for a long conversation, and although ultimately she was not able to participate in this project, we benefited from her insights and ideas and are grateful for the time she dedicated to thinking through the volume. We also thank the anonymous reviewers at the University of Pittsburgh Press and the University Press of Florida for their enthusiasm and constructive suggestions , and we thank Joshua Shanholtzer and Alex Wolfe at the University of Pittsburgh Press for shepherding our manuscript through the review and production process, as well as Eric Levy for his extraordinary attention to detail and superb suggestions in the copyediting process. “Shaping the Taraspanglish Diaspora,” by Argelia González Hurtado, is an expanded version of a prior essay with the same title published under the Creative Commons license in Decolonization: Indigeneity, Education and Society 4, no. 1 (2015).
