Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture is a double-blind, peer-reviewed, online international journal dedicated to publishing the most current international research on Latin American and Latinx visual culture, that is, the visual culture of Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean, as well as that created in diaspora. LALVC publishes research and scholarly debate focused on ancient (Pre-Columbian), colonial, modern, contemporary, and Latinx visual culture approached from a range of interdisciplinary methodologies. Long-form scholarly articles, topical debates, and book reviews consider the development of Latin American and Latinx visual culture, art history, material culture, architecture, visual studies, museum studies, collecting, cultural history, film, pop culture, public art, art and activism, as well as pedagogical issues, methodological debates, and historiographical concerns. Comparative and methodologically innovative papers are especially welcome.
Articles should not be previously published and should demonstrate a full command of the scholarly literature and available sources. Manuscripts are considered with the understanding that they have not been published previously in either print or electronic format and are not under consideration by another publication or electronic medium. A manuscript will be considered previously published if another work has, either singly or in combination: the same title; the same opening paragraph; 25 percent or more of the same content. Manuscripts that are accepted and subsequently found to be previously published will be dropped.
