The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology (JLACA) is a peer-reviewed journal of anthropological research on Latin America and the Caribbean, which is published in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. The journal maintains a broad definition of geographical remit and includes diasporic populations. This inclusion is aimed at allowing systematic, fertile, and intellectually stimulating comparisons, which have not been sufficiently explored in publications about the region.
Aims and Scope
JLACA has a special interest in publishing articles about the contemporary realities and the histories of diverse populations in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as of those who have migrated from Latin America and the Caribbean to other parts of the world. As a publication of the American Anthropological Association, JLACA’s mission is to provide a venue for anthropologists (sociocultural anthropologists, social archaeologists, sociolinguists, ethnohistorians) —as well as for scholars of cognate disciplines—to share their research findings from their critical study of social and cultural processes in Latin American and the Caribbean.
