We’re looking forward to getting together at the conference. But in case you won’t be traveling this year, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.

NEW SERIES ANNOUNCEMENT: LATINX HISTORIES

LatinX Histories Series Logo

Latinx Histories is premised on the view that understanding Latinx history is essential to a more complete and complex understanding of the history of the US, the Americas, and the world. The series editors and advisory board welcome book proposals that examine and offer a historical framework for the experiences of Latinx people ranging from earliest indigenous settlement in what is now known as the US through the present-day transnational US and beyond, and push the boundaries of race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, migration, and nationalism within and around Latinx communities. 

For more information, visit the Latinx Histories series page.

Co-editors:
Lori Flores, Stony Brook University
Michael Innis-Jiménez, University of Alabama

Editorial Advisory Board:
Llana Barber, SUNY Old Westbury
Adrian Burgos, University of Illinois
Geraldo Cadava, Northwestern University
Julio Capó, Jr., Florida International University
Miroslava Chavez-Garcia, University of California, Santa Barbara
