Brill Starts New Book Series on Latin Americans’ Ideas and Identities

Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 29 March 2018

Critical Latin America is the title of a new series, forthcoming with academic publisher Brill, focusing on the historical and contemporary currents, connections, and conflicts of Latin Americans’ ideas and identities.

Edited by David Carey Jr., Loyola University Maryland, and Renata Keller, University of Nevada at Reno, the series focuses on the intersections of identities—gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class—and such public and private fora as politics, culture, art, religion, and family. Interdisciplinary in nature, the series also examines how forces such as migration, revolution, economic development, production of knowledge (particularly scientific and medical), social movements, education, and the environment shape the ideas, identities, and lived experiences of Latin Americans.

The monographs and edited volumes published in the series will be peer reviewed, and available in print and online. Critical Latin America fits strategically with Brill’s growing portfolios in American Studies and Social Sciences.

Series editors David Carey Jr. and Renata Keller comment: "Poised to consider the dynamics of history from the micro to the macro level, this exciting new series examines Latin American lives and nations from colonial times to the present. Books in the series will explore how identities and forces such as migration, revolution, economic development, production of knowledge, social movements, education, and the environment have shaped each other and Latin American realities, past and present."

The editors invite proposals for original monographs, edited collections, translations, and critical primary source editions, in English.
