Latin American and Caribbean Ethnic Studies Journal (LACES) is a cross-disciplinary journal for quality research on ethnicity, race relations, and indigenous peoples. It is open to case studies, comparative analysis and theoretical contributions that reflect innovative and critical perspectives, focused on any country or countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, written by authors from anywhere in the world.
In a context in which ethnic issues are becoming increasingly important throughout the region, we are seeing the rapid expansion of a considerable corpus of work on the social, political, and cultural implications. The aim of the Journal is to play a constructive role in the consolidation of this new field of studies and in the configuration of its contours as an intellectual enterprise.
Latin American and Caribbean Ethnic Studies welcomes scholarly work from all the relevant disciplines in the Social Sciences and the Humanities. All submissions to the journal are independently refereed.
The journal Latin American and Caribbean Ethnic Studies is institutionally sponsored by the Center for Latin American and Iberian Studies and the Office for Graduate Studies and Research at UCSD.
