The contributions gathered in this issue reflect the theme of the 2009 MALCS Summer Institute, “Border as Mirror: Negotiating the View from Here.” The contributors’ pieces for this issue together explore varied storehouses of knowledge, from lived experience to crafted research. Individually and collectively we embody knowledge and are living archives that emanate and create bodies of knowledge. As so many of the pieces in this issue illustrate, there is incredible intellectual worth, personal power, and benefit in putting a magnifying glass to our wounds.
