Latinx: The Future is Now

Edited by Nicole Guidotti-Hernandez and Lorgia Garcia-Peña

Latinx: The Future Is Now is an interdisciplinary series devoted to the evolving field of Latina/o/x studies, including Central American, Afro-Latinx, and Asian-Latinx studies. Situated at the nexus of cultural, performance, historical, food, environmental, and textual studies, the series will focus on ways in which the racial, cultural, and social formations of historical Latinx communities can engage and enhance scholarship across geographies and nationalities. The series editors invite projects that consider the multiple queer and gender-fluid possibilities that are embodied in the “x”; projects that have a feminist critique of patriarchy at the center of their intellectual work; projects that deploy a relational approach to ethnic and national groups; and projects that address the overlapping dynamics of gender, race, sexual, and national identities. Submissions or queries may be directed to the series editors, Nicole Guidotti-Hernandez, and Lorgia Garcia-Peña, in addition to Senior Acquisitions Editor, Kerry Webb,

Historia USA

Edited by Luis Alvarez, Carlos Kevin Blanton, and Lorrin Thomas

Historia USA Historia USA advances the interpretive and methodological innovations that are generating vibrant new historical narratives about Latina/o communities in the United States. The series prioritizes histories constructed within broad, interdisciplinary frameworks rather than discrete studies focused on a single group or discipline; narratives that account for the hemispheric and transnational dimensions of the US Latina/o experience; and scholarship that maps the experience of Latinx groups around the nation and traces their complicated histories far beyond standard and separate narratives. Submissions or queries may be directed to Senior Acquisitions Editor, Kerry Webb,
