Latino Studies - Call For Papers (Open Submissions)
Latino Studies is a new international, peer-reviewed journal, published by Palgrave-Macmillan, three times a year, as of 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 presence of Latinas and Latinos 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 provides an intellectual forum for innovative explorations and theorization. We welcome submissions of original research articles of up to 8,000 words, from humanities and social science scholars and practitioners in the national and international research communities.
In addition to scholarly articles, we also invite submissions of reports from the field for our Vivencias section. These short essays (between 750- 2000 words) should describe and analyze significant local issues, struggles and/or debates affecting the lives of Latinos and Latinas in particular regions of the country. In publishing these Vivencias our aim is to record and inform our readers about events that are sometimes over-looked by the national and regional media.
We invite essays of up to 3500 words that address issues of pedagogy and curriculum for our Reflexiones pedagógicas, edited by Antonia Darder. 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, edited by Silvio Torres Saillant. These pages, recovered from the past, aim to make visible, historically significant achievements by individuals, and pivotal events in the experience of Latinas and Latinos in the United States.
Finally, we ask that you send us your comments and responses to the articles in each Volume, for El Forum, our Letters to the editor section.
Please submit articles and any comments (including suggestions for book and media reviews) by email to the journal’s Editor, Suzanne Oboler. Complete guidelines for submission are available at our website below.
