JLACA

The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology (JLACA) is published by the American Anthropological Association on behalf of the Society for Latin and Caribbean Anthropology.

Overview
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.
As a publication of the American Anthropological Association, JLACA ‘s mission is to provide a venue for anthropologists (sociocultural anthropologists, social archaeologists, sociolinguists, ethnohistorians etc.) — as well as for scholars of cognate disciplines — who are engaged in the critical study of social and cultural processes in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Aims and Scope
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.
We have a special interest in publishing articles about the contemporary realities as well as about the histories of the diverse populations who live and interact in Latin America and the Caribbean, or who being from Latin America or the Caribbean have migrated to, or are the children of migrants to, North America, Europe, and elsewhere. As a publication of the American Anthropological Association, JLACA ‘s mission is to provide a venue for anthropologists (sociocultural anthropologists, social archaeologists, sociolinguists, ethnohistorians etc.) – as well as for scholars of cognate disciplines – who are engaged in the critical study of social and cultural processes in Latin America and the Caribbean. This inclusion is aimed at allowing systematic, fertile, and intellectually stimulating comparisons, which have not been sufficiently explored in publications about the region.
