Abstract

This article understands travel as a bodily experience that interrupts the ideas of the progress and productivity of modernity and modernization. It explores the complex itineraries of two influential Latin American queer writers: the Mexican playwright and chronicler Salvador Novo (1904-1974) and the Chilean novelist and diplomat Augusto D’Halmar (1882-1950). The article examines bodily transformations that range from Eastern clothing and intense fevers (D’Halmar) to cosmetic prostheses (Novo) to discuss and dispute the fixity and immobility of sex.
