Studies in Subaltern Latina/o Politics RSS

The goal of Studies in Subaltern Latina/o Politics is to provide a forum for scholars who seek to expand and reconfigure the disciplinary boundaries of research on Latina/o politics. Building upon the momentum of a recent generation of scholars working at the intersection of political theory and Latino studies, we seek monographs that are informed by critical theoretical approaches and that adopt a range of methodologies such as ethnographic, interpretative and other qualitative methodologies, including popular and participatory methods.

Inspired by, but not limited to, Gramscian theoretical interventions, this series is concerned with the politics of subaltern Latinas/os, the most marginalized sectors of the polity who are engaged in various forms of oppositional politics that range from social movements to quotidian struggles. We see social movement organizing and the daily struggles of subaltern Latinas/os, such as day laborers, transnational activists, refugees, sex workers, the urban poor, criminalized youth, Afro and Indigenous Latinos, LGBT communities, and other "submerged networks of everyday life" as an integral part of developing political strategies that contest the hegemony of dominant groups and their authoritarian mode of governance.

We solicit manuscripts whose primary focus is studying "politics from the ground up," and that explore, for example, quotidian forms of everyday resistance and social movements in civil society. In essence, we seek manuscripts that focus on how Latinas/os engage in the politics of power and that transcend the traditional realms of study in political science and its focus on electoral politics, public opinion, and survey work. We welcome works that are transnational and transdisciplinary in nature, and that advance counter-hegemonic paradigms including but not limited to Marxist, decolonial, radical feminist, Black diasporic and other critical approaches. We encourage scholars to submit manuscripts from across the social sciences and the humanities such as political science, geography, anthropology, sociology, history, urban studies, geography and interdisciplinary fields such as Ethnic Studies, Chicano Studies, Latino Studies and Latin American Studies.

Alfonso Gonzales is Associate Professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies and the Director of the Latin American Studies Program at the University of California Riverside. His scholarly interests are in subaltern Latino politics, migration control, asylum, migrant and refugee social movements in the United States, Mexico, and Central America. He is the author of the award-winning book Reform without Justice: Latino Migrant Politics and the Homeland Security State (Oxford University Press, 2013).

Paul Apostolidis is Professorial Lecturer in the Government Department of the London School of Economics and Political Science. He is the author of The Fight for Time: Migrant Day Laborers and the Politics of Precarity (Oxford University Press 2019) and Breaks in the Chain: What Immigrant Workers Can Teach America about Democracy (University of Minnesota Press, 2010), and Stations of the Cross: Adorno and Christian Right Radio (Duke University Press, 2000). His research explores work and political action among precariously situated groups by combining field inquiries among US Latinx migrant workers with critical theory. Prof. Apostolidis is a visiting expert scholar in residence in the Mellon-funded 'Latinx Futures' research project, for which he is overseeing development of a popular-education initiative in California's Inland Empire. Prior to joining the LSE's faculty in 2019 he held the T. Paul Chair of Political Science at Whitman College, where he founded and directed a nationally recognized research program that put students in partnerships with non-profit organizations to investigate social and political conditions for Latinx communities.
