Latino Studies is a new international, peer-reviewed journal. It will be published three times a year, with the first issue appearing in March 2003.Its principal aim is to advance interdisciplinary scholarship about the lived experience and struggles of Latinas and Latinos for equity, representation, and social justice. Sustaining the tradition of activist scholarship of the founders of Chicana and Chicano Studies and Puerto Rican Studies, we engage critically the study of the local, national, transnational, and hemispheric realities that continue to influence the Latina and Latino presence in the United States. The journal is committed to developing a new transnational research agenda that bridges the academic and non-academic worlds and fosters mutual learning and collaboration among all the Latino national groups.
Latino Studies Call for Papers
Editor: Suzanne Oboler, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA Latino Studies provides an intellectual forum for innovative explorations and theorization. We welcome submissions of original research articles of up to 8,000 words, from scholars and practitioners in the national and international research communities.
In addition to scholarly articles, we also invite submissions of ‘reports from the field ’. These short essays (between 750- 1500 words) should describe and analyses significant local issues, struggles and debates affecting the lives of Latinos and Latinas in different regions of the country. In publishing the ‘reports ’our aim is to record and inform our readers about events that are sometimes over-looked by the national and regional media.
There will be an extensive book and media reviews section, which will be devoted to scholarship on the experience of Latinas and Latinos in the United States. Finally, we invite essays of up to 3500 words that address issues of pedagogy and curriculum. This section will appear once a year and will contribute toward the development and institutionalization of our field in the academy.
Along these lines, we also welcome submissions of short documents (roughly 1000 words) for the journal’s ‘páginas recuperadas ’ section. These ‘recovered pages ’ aim to make visible, historically significant achievements by individuals, and pivotal events in the experience of Latinas and Latinos in the United States.
