This new series offers cutting-edge analyses of violence in all its forms in modern and contemporary Latin/x America, the Caribbean, Spain, and Portugal. Violence can manifest in multiple ways: as gender violence, femicide, and sexual violence; political violence; gang violence and street crime; violence carried out by guerrillas; violence and discrimination against indigenous and Afro-Latino populations; drugs, weapons, and human trafficking; and as the cause and reality of migration.
Engaging with the dynamics and ramifications of violence, the series encompasses a broad range of topics including crime; gender, sexuality, racism, and ethnicity; conflict resolution, human rights, social justice, and historical memory; neoliberalism, poverty, and development; and migration. It covers both urban and rural environments and ranges from the level of the local street to transnational settings. Rigorous studies based on empirical investigation and informed by contemporary theory are welcome.
