Studies in Latin America is a series of short works, approximately 20,000 to 35,000 words in length, published by the Institute for the Study of the Americas at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. These books are distributed by UNC Press in multiple formats including digital open access as well as in print and e-book formats.
Studies in Latin America promotes new scholarship on Latin America and the Caribbean focusing on the social sciences—principally anthropology, geography, history, political science, and sociology—and featuring diverse methodological approaches and perspectives on vital issues concerning Latin America and the Caribbean, past and present. Studies in Latin America welcomes English-language manuscripts by senior scholars as well as by junior scholars. Submissions undergo a formal peer-review process as part of the publication decision. The Institute for the Study of the Americas and UNC Press anticipate a wide distribution of the scholarship included in Studies in Latin America by taking advantage of the digital publishing environment.
