Abstract This chapter presents the book Affect, Gender and Sexuality in Latin America. The aim of the book is to gather contributions from an emerging field of thought and knowledge production in Latin America: the analysis of affect, feelings, and emotions, and their impact on how we think about politics, gender, and sexuality. In this introduction, we engage in close dialogue with the growing field of affect studies in Latin America. We also explore the complex and even contradictory social processes that Latin America is experiencing today, and why many regional authors are turning to affect to understand our present situation, revisit our history, and imagine new possibilities for the future. We propose that this regional production marks a departure from mainstream academia and draw attention to the arguments, methods, and critical contributions of Latin America. Finally, we clarify the use of the conceptual terminology throughout the book.
