To reflect on the fiftieth anniversary of the 1973 Chilean coup, and the U.S. role in Latin America more broadly, Process invites proposals and submissions for an upcoming series on U.S. intervention in Latin America.
We are open to a wide variety of themes relating to the histories of the United States in Latin America, including forms and methods of U.S. imperialism, transregional solidarities and activisms, and historical interpretations of contemporary developments. Submissions might explore U.S.–Latin American relations and diplomacy, examine challenges to different forms of colonialism and the meanings of sovereignty, or interrogate the nature of U.S. empire in the region in any time period. We encourage pieces that engage in global, transnational, or comparative perspectives, that critically examine definitions of intervention and empire, and that intersect with issues of race, gender, sexuality, culture, sovereignty, the environment, technology, migration, or politics. We accept submissions from anyone engaged in the practice of U.S. history, including researchers, teachers, graduate students, archivists, curators, public historians, digital scholars, and others.
Submissions should be written for a public readership and should not exceed 1500 words. We will look to publish pieces in late 2023, but are open to submissions past that point. Send proposals and drafts to [email protected].
