Call for Submissions: US Latina & Latino Oral History Journal

Volume 5- Latina/o Art


The US Latina & Latino Oral History Journal, a peer-reviewed publication dedicated to research about the country’s Latina/o population and relies on oral history as an essential methodology, invites submissions of original manuscripts for its fifth volume. The journal is published by the University of Texas Press for the UT-Austin Center for Mexican American Studies, in partnership with the Voces Oral History Project at the UT School of Journalism.


Thematic Issue: Subject of interest is oral histories of Latina/o art, artists, art activism, and more. This includes, but is not limited to, public art, murals, community artists, art and education, and testimonies of Latina/o artists. We will also consider similar themes as long as the focus is US Latinos through oral history.


Professional Oral History Standards: Oral history interviews cited in submitted manuscripts must conform to the established best professional standards, including:

  • The interviews cited must have been recorded and deposited in an established repository.
  • Each oral history interview must have a consent form, a copy of which must be provided to the journal if the manuscript is selected for publication.

Submissions: Submitted articles must be based primarily on oral history interviews and follow the best practices recommended by the Oral History Association. Please refer to the journal's submission guidelines (https://utpress.utexas.edu/journals/us-latina-latino-oral-history-journal) for length and formatting specifications.


All articles must be original - neither published nor under review elsewhere.


Upon receipt, all texts will be subjected to a double-blind peer review process.


Book Reviews: The journal also welcomes the submission of reviews of books centered on US Latinas/os, and which utilize oral history as a primary method. Submitted reviews should not exceed 1,000 words.


The deadline for initial submissions is Tuesday, October 1, 2019. All submissions should be directed to latoralhistory@utexas.edu.
