About Latina/o Studies Association (LSA):

The Latina/o Studies Association (LSA) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and cultivating Latino/a/x Studies. The organization arose as a response to a momentum in Latino Studies for creating an autonomous professional space in which to engage current scholarship, exchange pedagogical models, improve mentoring structures, and increase opportunities for professional development. LSA offers those whose research and activism focuses on issues relevant to global Latina/o/x populations opportunities to present their research, exchange ideas in live and virtual interchanges, and build coalitions that further cultivate the field.

About Lived Places Publishing (LPP)

Lived Places Publishing (LPP) is building a catalog of applied and concise course reading material in interdisciplinary collections. Each title we publish explores the intersection of identity and place, humanizing an issue through lived experience(s).

Our model is constructed with libraries in mind:

  • DRM-free, unlimited user access, and unrestricted PDF download of titles
  • Whole ebook interlibrary loan (ILL) to one partner institution at a time
  • Affordable, perpetual access pricing (single, one-time fee) with region-appropriate discounts to ensure every institution across the globe can own the LPP collection
  • 5% of all sales set aside to fund author-choice open access publishing at our average production cost (actual costs published publicly on our website, updated every 6 months)

More info for librarians: 

We are growing quickly: Institutions such as UPenn, Georgetown, NYU, Princeton, UT Austin, LSU, Northwestern, University of Toronto, and Cambridge University have all become partners recently. We hope to welcome you to this growing family of institutions.

About LPP's Latinx Studies Collection

Our books are short course readings (~150 pages), exploring the intersection of identity and place. Each LPP book includes learning objectives, recommended assignments, and discussion guides, and are designed to take up about 2-3 weeks of a college-level course.

Dr. Louis Mendoza has also written a book for our Latinx Studies Collection

You can hear more about the book in Dr. Mendoza's recent interview on WSOU (Seton Hall University).
