Call for Submissions 2018
Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture
A new journal to be published by University of California Press
Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture (LALVC) is a new quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal published by the University California Press, scheduled for publication in January 2019. The editorial staff is now reviewing submissions.
Focused on Latin American and Latinx visual culture of all time periods — ancient, colonial, modern, and contemporary – LALVC publishes on Mexico, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and the United States, as well as on communities in diaspora. LALVC considers all aspects of visual expression, including, but not limited to, art history, material culture, architecture, film and media, museum studies, pop culture, fashion, public art and activism. We welcome a range of interdisciplinary methodologies and perspectives. Additionally, the journal seeks to inspire and advance dialogue and debate concerning pedagogical, methodological, and historiographical issues.
We welcome scholarly research articles (10,000 to 12,000 words) written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, as well as in American indigenous languages. Contact the editors if you are interested in proposing a guest-edited DIALOGUES section or writing a review of a book or exhibition.
Deadline for submissions to be considered for the first issue is June 1, 2018.
