Carmen Martínez-Novo, professor at the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida, was named the new editor in chief of the Latin American Research Review (LARR).

The LARR, issued four times each year, publishes articles in the humanities and social sciences that advance research in Latin American, Caribbean, and Latina/Latino studies. Publications include articles in the fields of anthropology, politics and international relations, and more.

Dr. Martínez-Novo’s research focuses on indigenous identities, politics, and rights. She is the author of Who Defines Indigenous?: Identities, Development, Intellectuals, and the State in Northern Mexico (Rutgers University Press 2006).

Professor Martinez-Novo joined the faculty at the University of Florida in 2019 after teaching at the University of Kentucky. She is a graduate of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Spain, where she majored in geography and history. Dr. Martinez-Novo holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in anthropology from The New School in New York.
