Engendering Latin America
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.
