The fifth issue of Brújula will be devoted to the study of Latin American cities. We will consider for publication manuscripts that analyze the idea of the city from either historical, mythical or imaginary perspectives, as well as those that deal with the urban experience and its social, political, economic and cultural manifestations. Brújula is especially interested in submissions from diverse disciplines that examine the expression of the margin/periphery in the center and from pre-colonial times until today.
