For more than twenty-five years, the Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies has been the leading publication in English on Latin American culture and on theoretical and historical approaches to cultural production in Latin America, including Caribbean, Latino/a and other diasporic, trans-regional formations. Multidisciplinary work defining and proposing new areas of research and debate is especially welcome. We encourage contributions on the full range of cultural objects, practices, and expressions (including literature, film, visual arts, music), as well as the informal structures of meaning and communication at societal and sub-cultural levels. We welcome work that engages disciplines such as film and media studies, literary criticism, anthropology, gender and queer studies, communication, history and memory studies, and other areas of analysis.
