Welcome to the Journal of
Mexican Studies/Estudios Mexicanos!
Mexican Studies/Estudios Mexicanos is a bilingual, international scholarly journal dedicated to providing a unique and essential forum for the dissemination of cutting-edge research relating to Mexico, broadly defined. Analyzing cultural, historical, political, social, economic, artistic, and scientific factors, and engaging a range of disciplinary frameworks, fields and approaches, articles contribute to understanding and knowledge of contemporary and historical issues. The breadth and multiplicity enables scholars from many disciplines to collaboratively address critical concerns. MS/EM carries scholarly articles, review essays, and book reviews.
For 2016 and beyond, the journal will publish three issues a year. Concurrently, two new formats will be introduced: Special Issues and Thematic Sections. These will provide a focused set of articles examining a critical and timely topic. Please consider submitting a proposal for a Special Issue or Thematic Section (see the UCSB website for full details: www.hfa.ucsb.edu/mexicanestudiosjournal).
A new UC Press MS/EM journal website is also now live, providing greater interactivity and access to full color images and multimedia, where available. Please take a moment to visit: http://msem.ucpress.edu.
MS/EM was founded in 1984 by Dr. Jaime Rodríguez (UC Irvine). The journal is owned by UC Press and is a cooperative venture of the University of California Institute for Mexico and the United States (UC MEXUS) and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM).
