Latinx Studies Collection

Collection Editor:
Dr Manuel Callahan

Manuel’s Vision for the Collection

The Latinx Studies Collection will be guided by the conviction that the “Lived Places” of our titles will embrace those stories that engage the physical and imagined borders, borderlands, and fronteras that both confront and produce the spaces of struggle where social identities converge and intersect. This collection seeks titles that investigate various Latinx and Chicanx identities that cut across the Americas and, indeed, the globe, with the goal of confronting (settler) colonialism and highlighting the experiences of the different movements that have come to comprise the Latinx and Chicanx experience.

For seasoned writers, my role as collection editor will be that of occasional progress-checker, deadline-reminder, and draft reader. For first-time writers, my role will be that of co-strategist, frequent draft commentator, and general encourager. For those in-between, we will come up with an arrangement that will permit authorial freedom and editorial feedback.

About the Collection Editor

Dr Manuel Callahan is an insurgent learner and convivial researcher with the Center for Convivial Research and Autonomy (CCRA). He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin. Dr Callahan’s work explores three interwoven areas: the US/Mexico border and borderlands historically and in the present; Indigenous struggles across the Americas including Zapatista struggles in Chiapas; and convivial research, a community-based research approach that engages the intersections between Zapatismo, conviviality, and autonomous struggles throughout Greater Mexico. He also participates in the Universidad de la Tierra Califas, an autonomous learning space networked across the San Francisco Bay Area and connected to other autonomous spaces across Mexico and beyond.
