A note from Carla Martin

Due to space constraints, it was not possible to include all of the collected works in Transition 103. The authors, artists, and translators whose work could not be fit into the issue are currently working to find other spaces for publication. Details are provided here describing the unpublished selections. As these selections are published elsewhere, this page will be updated. To contact Carla Martin, please e-mail her at cdmartin AT post DOT harvard DOT edu.


A number of individuals provided support and expert guidance throughout the process of selection review, translation, and editing. We are most grateful for their generosity. Our hearty thanks go to Trevor Bass, Inês Brito, Steven Caton, Michel DeGraff, Osvaldo Dos Reis, Iolanda Évora, Adam McGee, Joaquim Morais, Salikoko Mufwene, John Mugane, Martina Nitzsche, Illiana Celia Quimbaya, José Augusto Sanches, Kay Kaufman Shelemay, Danny Spínola, Sandra Teixeira, Jorge Tolentino, and all of the authors, artists, translators, scholarly essay contributors, and editors involved in this project.
