This series publishes on a wide range of topics in Mexican history including, but not limited to, the environment, Indigenous peoples, gender, technology, social history, and politics. Our authors represent diverse perspectives, and the series supports first-generation scholars and the voices and views of authors from Mexico, North America, and other parts of the world. The series is aimed at specialists and non-specialists who seek a deeper understanding of Mexico and the Mexican diaspora.

Engendering Latin America attracts, disseminates, and assists in the creation of quality book-length works that examine the social, cultural, and gendered histories of Latin America. The series concentrates on history informed by current debates and research questions that arise from feminist studies, gender-based scholarship, and allied research.
The editors define gender broadly, both geographically and chronologically, to encompass work derived from Latin America and the Caribbean, from colonial to modern times. Covering themes such as feminism, masculinity, culture, ethnicity, public health, modernity, nation-building, race, and politics, Engendering Latin America examines marginal groups such as women, minorities, indigenous peoples, and other non-elites to provide sophisticated interdisciplinary analyses of cultures and gender south of the border.
This series has been inactive for several years, but has recently been relaunched with new series editors.
David Carey and Elizabeth O’Brien, series editors
As agents and objects of environmental change, bodies reflect our complicated relationship with nature. From polluted waterways and airborne toxins to aguas negras and salmonella outbreaks, our health and bodies are inseparable from the world around us. Now more than ever, the links between bodies (human and animal), pathogens, and ecologies are ubiquitous and ripe for historicization.
These themes run throughout Latin American and Caribbean history and society, linking nations, regions, and cultures in the past and present. The colonial legacies of such extractive industries as mining, monoculture, and animal production have spoiled water sources, deforested diverse biomes, and eroded topsoil in ways that have undermined public health. In turn, climatic changes have increased drought, wrought more powerful hurricanes, and expanded flooding zones. All have catalyzed microbial militaries that wreak havoc even after initial devastations subside. These disasters have compelled millions of Latin Americans to leave their homeland and seek refuge in other nations, while migrant laborers living and working in compromised conditions have been susceptible to disease. Water has also long been a site of struggle amongst marginalized communities, scientific and governmental authorities, multinational capitalists, and international philanthropies.
Located at the intersection of the burgeoning fields of environmental history, the history of the body, and the history of medicine, this series encourages and celebrates historians’ growing interest in people’s health and the resources, climates, and technologies that shape it. We invite projects on a variety of topics, including (but not limited to) environmental policy, urban and rural development, agriculture and water, public health policy and activism, biomedical and popular medicine, disease and epidemics, disability and the body, race and the racialization of medicine and the environment, and science and technology.
