Latinx Pop Culture
The Latinx Pop Culture series aims to shed light on all aspects of Latinx cultural production and consumption as well as the Latinx presence globally in popular cultural phenomena in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century. The books will analyze and make visible the variety and vitality of the presence and significant influence of Latinx popular culture in the United States and beyond.
The books will be recognized as vibrant scholarly works on key figures and seminal topics in Latinx popular culture, offering a critical, interpretive lens with a lasting impact. The books in the series will be designed for lay readers, faculty, and students alike, who seek accessible scholarship on key topics and figures in the making of Latinx pop culture. They will provide crucial orientation for further study and equip readers with the knowledge to engage with key Latinx popular cultural figures and their products.
The series editors seek writers with an established track record for writing well (with precision and elegance and not relying on jargon to do the explanatory work), of scholarly excellence, and of meeting deadlines. The focus, method, and approach used would depend on the scholar’s preference: historical, cultural, and regional information would be included where necessary. While longer single-authored manuscripts and edited collections are welcome, the series will also publish occasional shorter length books (between the journal and the monograph).
