New Mexico State University Will Be the New Home of the Journal Chicana/Latina Studies

New Mexico State University is the new home to the Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social. MALCS is an organization for self-identified Chicana, Latina, Native American, and gender non-conforming students, scholars and activists. The journal’s goal is to promote inclusive and diverse scholarly manuscripts, art, essays, creative writing, and book reviews.

The journal began at the University of California at Davis in 1991. It is currently housed at the University of Texas in San Antonio.

“New Mexico State University is honored and thrilled to be chosen as the next home of Chicana/Latina Studies, said Luis Cifuentes, vice president for research and dean of the graduate school at New Mexico State University. “Both the provost and I support this effort because it adds to NMSU’s comprehensive academic excellence and contributes to our goal of reaching Carnegie R1 ranking.”

Dr. Flores Carmona

Judith Flores Carmona, interim director of Chicano programs and associate professor and faculty fellow in the Honors College; Manal Hamzeh, professor of gender and sexuality studies and interdisciplinary studies; Cynthia Bejarano, Regents Professor in gender and sexuality studies and interdisciplinary studies; and Brenda Rubio, assistant professor of educational leadership and administration, will alternate as lead editor of the journal.

The journal will feature English or Spanish submissions of scholarships, commentary, reviews, and creative writing. It will be published twice a year in the spring and fall.

“The Journal’s mission will continue to build bridges between local communities, higher education institutions, and transnational feminists in diasporic contexts,” said Dr. Flores Carmona, who will be the lead editor of the first issue published at New Mexico State.
