Latinos in Chicago and the Midwest


Acquiring Editor: Dominique J. Moore
Series Editor: Omar Valerio-Jiménez, and Sujey Vega

This series documents the histories, challenges, and contributions of Latinos to Chicago and the Midwest. It promotes an understanding of regional and historical differences in Latino communities and of the ways in which Latinos in Chicago and throughout the Midwest construct their own sense of Latinidad and cultural difference. It offers new conceptual frameworks for the study of interlatino dynamics in this understudied region as well as comparative studies with other regions in the United States and in transnational relations with Latin America. The series editors seek topics that shed new light on the issues that impact Latino/a lives in the Midwest. They welcome inquiries and questions from scholars, journalists, writers, and artists, envisioning a series of books that are not exclusively academic but from a wide array of disciplines and discourses.
