Submission Guidelines & Form

Latino Cultures Network welcomes contributions from all users! We especially encourage instructors to have students submit work for publication consideration as one of LCN’s aims is to involve students in the knowledge-making process. Each submission will be reviewed by at least two readers: one of our general editors and one of our field editors (see Editorial Collective for more on our editorial structure). Contributors should expect to hear back from LCN within 3 months.

Entry Categories

  • FLASHPOINTS describe events not with an historiographical impulse, but in a way that emphasizes how past events reverberate into the present, how they have a lasting and continual effect.
  • LEXICON entries are comprehensive discussions of terms significant to Latino studies. These entries resemble literature reviews, but they make explicit interventions and revisions to the standard usage and understanding of said term.
  • TEXT entries are not encyclopedic descriptions of texts and authors. Rather, the entries should use the text in order to make a critical intervention, perhaps by offering an iconoclastic or revisionist close reading.
  • IMAGES, OBJECTS, AND SOUNDS entries explore the significance of visual, aural, and physical elements for Latino studies.
  • TEACH entries include Lectures (we welcome links to videos), teaching ideas, syllabi, and descriptions of recent scholarship (including book or article reviews and conference write ups – under 2000 words for these, please)
