Nepantla is a term that in short translates as "in between places" - it was used to identify that cultural "in-betweenness" experienced by people living in the borderlands or living in between two cultures.
"Living between cultures results in 'seeing' double, first from the perspective of one culture, then from the perspective of another. Seeing from two or more perspectives simultaneously renders those cultures transparent. Removed from that culture's center you glimpse the sea in which you've been immersed but to which you were oblivious, no longer seeing the world the way you were enculturated to see it." --Gloria E. Anzaldúa
