TRANSMODERNITY: Journal of Peripheral Cultural Production of the Luso-Hispanic World, a peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary journal of Luso-Hispanic and U.S. Latino literary and cultural studies, is published by eScholarship and is part of the University of California. The Journal promotes the study of marginalized areas of Luso-Hispanic cultural production of any period and invites submissions of unpublished studies dealing with peripheral cultural production in the Luso-Hispanic world. It also welcomes relevant interdisciplinary work, interviews and book reviews, as they relate to “South-to-South” dynamics between formerly colonized peoples. Although the Journal is mostly devoted to non-canonical work, it will consider articles that rethink canonical texts from postcolonial and transmodern approaches.
is a web-based press dedicated to posting unpublished creative works, primarily by Latino and Latina authors
Join us for UC Merced's Ongoing Chicano/a Literature series
The Chicano/a Literature Series at UC Merced started in the fall of 2005, as a forum to bring major Chicano/a writers, scholars, and artists to UC Merced. As a Hispanic Serving Institution, UC Merced is perfectly poised to become a major cultural center for Chicanos/as and Latinos/as in the Central Valley. To that end, the Chicano/a Literature Series serves as a major catalyst for showcasing Chicano/a and Latino/a talent in an interactive setting that benefits both the UC Merced and the Merced communities. The Series has featured numerous award-winning authors.
