Call for Submissions: Latin American Cities

The fifth issue of Brújula will be devoted to the study of Latin American
cities. We will consider for publication manuscripts that analyze the idea
of the city from either historical, mythical or imaginary perspectives, as
well as those that deal with the urban experience and its social, political,
economic and cultural manifestations. Brújula is especially interested in
submissions from diverse disciplines that examine the expression of the
margin/periphery in the center and from pre-colonial times until today.
