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

CR: The New Centennial Review is devoted to comparative studies of the Americas. The journal’s primary emphasis is on the opening up of the possibilities for a future Americas that does not amount to a mere reiteration of its past. We seek interventions, provocations, and, indeed, insurgencies that release futures for the Americas. In general, CR welcomes work that is inflected, informed, and driven by theoretical and philosophical concerns at the limits of the potentialities for the Americas.

Such work may be explicitly concerned with the Americas, or it may be broader, global, and/or genealogical scholarship with implications for the Americas. CR recognizes that the language of the Americas is translation, and that, therefore, questions of translation, dialogue, and border crossings (linguistic, cultural, national, and the like) are necessary for rethinking the foundations and limits of the Americas.

For more than 50 years, CR has been a journal committed to interdisciplinarity, and we continue to encourage work that goes beyond a simple [End Page v] performance of the strategies of various disciplines and interdisciplines and that, therefore, interrogates them.

This issue of CR developed out of two related conference sessions, one held at the 2012 American Comparative Literature Association meeting in Providence, Rhode Island, the other at the 2012 Latin American Studies Association meeting in San Francisco, California. We thank Paula Cucurella for coordinating the issue.

We are currently soliciting articles on the following special topics:

Law and Violence
Indigenous Aesthetics
Auto-Affection and Self-Consciousness
Literature and the Limit
Translation and Global Literatures
Empire of Comedy
Style [End Page vi]
