NEW SERIES ANNOUNCEMENT: LATINX HISTORIES

As a leading publisher of American and Latin American history, UNC Press is delighted to announce the launch of Latinx Histories, a book series premised on the view that understanding Latinx history is essential to a more complete and complex understanding of the history of the United States, 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 United States through the present-day transnational U.S. and beyond, resulting in a collection of innovative historical works that 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.

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

Geraldo Cadava, Northwestern University
