The Journal of Latin American Cultural Studies (TraveSia) publishes articles on the history and analysis of Latin American culture and on the development of theories and methods for studying the cultural practices of Latin Americans. Multi-disciplinary articles which contribute to defining this strongly emerging area of research and debate are especially welcome, the disciplines of particular relevance being anthropology, communication studies, history and literature. Work which investigates the multiple effects of modernization is of special interest to the Journal as are articles which seek to explore the notion of cultural field. The Journal also welcomes research articles concerned with situations of cultural hybridity and with the development of methods for their analysis. The scope of articles is not limited to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; the Journal also publishes work on the cultural history of the colonial period. There is a review section which carries authoritative review articles on the state of the art in given fields. Articles are welcome on the whole range of cultural processes and expressions, including the arts (literature, film, visual arts, music), communication and the practices of ethnic sub-societies. Articles that explore new methods and new areas of investigation are particularly encouraged.
