Latinx Shorts
Edited by Frederick Luis Aldama

Latinx Shorts will publish incisive, exciting introductions to all things Latinx. Authored by experts, yet with students and everyday readers in mind, these books will offer engaging and well-developed entry points to major themes in Latinx studies at an accessible price point, making them ideal for course adoption. Books in the series will focus on contemporary topics key to building a fuller understanding of Latinx cultures, lived experiences, and sociocultural realities. Sample subjects—from within media, sociology, sports, history, gender and sexuality, the arts, and more—include fandoms, comics, religion, car culture, pop music, sports, food, and graffiti, as well as specific cultural and political figures.

Manuscripts should be approximately 35,000 words. For more information about the series or submitting a proposal contact: Kristen Elias Rowley, Editorial Director at The Ohio State University Press.
