We’re marking the 2021 virtual conference of the Latin American Studies Association by offering a selection of free content from UC Press journals.

Current History, the oldest publication devoted exclusively to international affairs published in the United States, devotes its February issue to the countries of Latin America. The geographic scope of this annual issue includes the Caribbean as well as South America, Central America, and Mexico. Contributors to these issues have included Alexandra Délano Alonso, Michael Shifter, and Javier Auyero. We invite you to read the February 2021 issue for free online for a limited time and encourage you to explore back issues devoted to Latin America.

Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture, which is dedicated to publishing the most current international research on the visual culture of Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean, as well as that created in diaspora, invites you to read its most recently published issue for free online for a limited time.

We’ve also temporarily removed the paywall from the “Dialogues: Addressing Diversity and Inclusion in Latin American and Latinx Art History” published in the journal’s inaugural volume. Ananda Cohen-Aponte, who co-edited this dialogues section with Elena Fitzpatrick Sifford, was recently the featured guest on the “Latinos Who Lunch” podcast and we encourage you to listen to the interview below.

Mexican Studies/Estudios Mexicanos—a bilingual, international scholarly journal dedicated to providing a unique and essential forum for the dissemination of cutting-edge research relating to Mexico, broadly defined—invites you to read its current issue for free online for a limited time. We also would like to draw your attention to recent Q&A’s we conducted with two of the issue’s contributors on the UC Press blog. Marjolein Van Bavel offers additional insight into her article, which explores the transgressive femininity of female wrestlers in 1950s Mexican lucha libre, and Mónica Unda-Gutiérrez discusses the research behind her article on Mexico’s 2013 tax reform effort and postulates Covid-19 may influence future tax reform efforts.
