"Drawing on her own experiences with a variety of social-justice movements and academic organizations, as well as her innovative understanding of the Nahautl term nepantla, (Gloria) Anzaldua coined the term nepantlera in her post-Borderlands work as she developed an expansive alternative to Chicana lesbian identity politics. For Anzaldua, the nepantlera represents a type of threshold person or world traveler: someone who enters into and interacts with multiple, often conflicting, political/cultural/ideological/ethnic/etc. worlds and yet refuses to entirely adopt, belong to, or identify with any single belief, group, or location."

Transformation Now! Toward a Post-Oppositional Politics of Change
Most important book I have read in a long time. Shit, she quotes Bruno Latour at the start of the introduction. Must read.
