Special Issue of Studies in American Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Latinx Studies has gained attention in this century and is no longer an emerging field of inquiry across multiple disciplines. This Special Issue will focus on key areas of inquiry that link Latinx and the Caribbean proposing innovative conceptual mappings that deepen understandings of existing connections as well as pointing to possible futures for the field. We are seeking in broad terms, to bring together a diverse group of scholarly voices that explore historical intersections, identity constructions, migration flows, diasporic communities, transnational challenges to ideas of citizenship and national belonging, and the place of race, gender, and sexuality in all of these.
