In this afterword, the authors begin to sketch the kind of future that they imagine. This afterword starts with an overview account of the first fifteen years of LatCrit theory, community, and praxis. Then turns to a handful of highlights regarding current or new programmatic initiatives that LatCrit scholars have recently launched or plan imminently to launch-a quick survey intended to connect the past with the present before turning to the future. In the concluding part of this afterword, the authors lay out some of the basic parameters for the LatCritical future that they imagine and that they hope to help cultivate in the coming months and years as LatCrit matures beyond its fifteenth anniversary.
