Latin American Jewish Studies is the interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal of the Latin American Jewish Studies Association (LAJSA). The journal publishes original scholarship on Jews, Jewishness, and Judaism within the context of Latin America and the Caribbean from the perspective of a broad array of disciplines in the arts, humanities, history, social sciences, and communications. Its mission is to advance the scholarly study of the Jewish experience and presence throughout the Américas through a variety of methodologies and theoretical and conceptual approaches. Latin American Jewish Studies invites contributions from all scholars working in the broadly defined, multidisciplinary field of Latin American Jewish Studies. Submissions are accepted in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. All articles will undergo a rigorous, double-blind peer-review process. The journal also publishes book reviews on recent scholarship in the field. LAJSA members receive a 10% discount on the subscription cost.
