Launch of New Book Series: Afro-Latino Diasporas
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan Series Editors: Juan Flores, Miriam Jiménez Román and Natasha Gordon-Chipembere
Th Afro-Latino Diasporas book series aims to gather scholarly and creative writing on the African diasporic experience in Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States.
The editors welcome manuscripts addressing any and all aspects of Afro-Latin@ life and cultural expression throughout the hemisphere, with a strong focus on US Latin@s of African descent. We will also consider relevant work on the transnational Brazilian and Haitian experience. We encourage submission of manuscripts in any and all academic disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, as well as a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches. Fictional and poetic work will be included, though the emphasis will be on critical historical and sociological analysis on a broad range of topics, including religion, history, literature, theory, biography, and scholarship in sociology, politics, and economics. We especially welcome works on issues of class, gender and sexuality, in addition to studies of the transnational Afro-Latin@ experience.
Publications will be in English, but we will also consider works in Spanish or other languages for possible translation.
