Welcome to our virtual exhibit! LASA 2020 may have been canceled, but we still have exciting new scholarship and research that we want to share with you. Since distributing knowledge is now more important than ever, we are delighted to bring our Latin American Studies exhibit directly to your screen!
From the desk of Eli Bortz, Editor in Chief:
When I arrived at the University of Notre Dame Press in 2016, I vowed we would always have a presence at the annual LASA congress. Our attendance at Lima in 2017 and Barcelona in 2018 attested to our commitment to Latin American studies. It goes without saying, of course, that the transformation of this year’s congress into a virtual meeting presents unique challenges. Given this unprecedented shift, we as a Press wanted to highlight our own particular focus in the field.
Strategically, Notre Dame Press sustains two major streams of publication in Latin American studies. The first is based on 15 years of work in colonial Latin American and Atlantic world history, and I continue to refine the offerings at Notre Dame Press to focus on issues of faith, science, cultural and political violence, and early economics. You’ll see that the majority of recent publications in colonial Latin American history reflect this trend.
The second stream reflects our unique collaborative relationship with the Notre Dame Kellogg Institute for International Studies, culminating in our books series titled Kellog Institute Series on Democracy and Development. This series incorporates almost exclusively contemporary Latin American and transnational political and economic issues, as well as contemporary cultural life.
Related to our contemporary focus, we are also developing a list in Latinx, Hispanic American, and Borderlands studies, in recognition of the university’s Catholic leadership and academic presence throughout the region.
We presently have two editors at work in Latin American studies, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re working in any of these fields. For works on colonial and/or historical topics, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and for work on contemporary subjects, please contact my colleague Rachel Kindler at email@example.com. Until LASA 2021, please browse our current offerings, and we hope you find something here that sparks your interest.
