Al Filo: Mexican American Studies Series

Roberto R. Calderón, Series Editor

Al Filo: Mexican American Studies Series welcomes titles primarily on Mexican American history and culture. The Mexican American experience in the Southwest, and especially in Texas, will be emphasized, but also welcome for consideration are studies of U.S.-Mexico border issues and titles covering areas in the United States outside of the Southwest.

The Series casts a wide chronological approach from colonial times to the present day, with emphasis on titles that discuss topics set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Submissions for the Series are welcomed primarily from historians but also from anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists, and those who practice in fine arts and other disciplines.

Original monographs and studies are favored, but anthologies, edited documentary volumes, studies based on oral history, and autobiographies will also be considered for the Series. Submissions are not invited in literary studies, fiction, and poetry.

Please send all queries to Ronald Chrisman, Director, UNT Press, 1155 union Circle #311336, Denton, TX 76203. Proposals will be logged in and forwarded to the series editor for consideration. Unsolicited manuscripts are not encouraged but may be evaluated nonetheless based on their merit.
