The American Historian

// Latest Issue

Latine History

The Summer 2022 issue of The American Historian features four articles on Latine history. One essay discusses the often overlooked and important role women played in Latine immigration to the midwest, and another shows how the history of Texas immigration should be viewed as a story of undocumented white immigration into the area. Another piece argues that we should imagine U.S. territorial expansion as southward rather than westward, a corrective that would do more to incorporate Latine history into the classroom. The final piece discusses the importance of using Spanish-language primary sources in the classroom. The issue also includes an essay on the legacy of POWs of the Vietnam War, an essay from the committee on Part-Time Adjunct and Contingent Employment, and an essay from OAH president Erika Lee.
