Philosophy in Latin America is a special series of philosophical books that pertain to all areas of value inquiry in the region. Its goal is to introduce the core content of Latin American philosophy to English-speaking readers.
The series covers all topics in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, including interdisciplinary works, addressing urgent issues such as decolonizing perspectives on modernity; diasporic identities; questions of representation; Afro-Caribbean traditions; indigeneity; race, class, gender, and LGBTQ+; migration and human rights; debts and reparations; the legacies of imperialism; and the effects of neo-liberal policies, among others.
In addition to original work in English, it welcomes proposals for translated versions of high-quality research monographs originally published in a language other than English and/or out of print. Manuscripts are subject to a double-blind peer-review process to ensure scholarly breadth, rigor, and excellence. Brill’s long-standing distribution network among academic libraries and conferences around the world guarantees a wide dissemination of its titles.
The Caribbean Series was established by the KITLV (Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies). In collaboration with the KITLV, Brill also publishes the esteemed New West Indian Guide.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals following these guidelines by email to the publisher, Chunyan Shu, or the series editor, Sophie Maríñez.

The editors invite proposals for original monographs, edited collections, translations, and critical primary source editions. Aiming to strike a balance between studies of the colonial and national eras, the series will consider manuscripts that deal with any period from the first European encounters in the Americas through the twenty-first century. The series embraces history on all scales, from the micro to the macro. The editors are as interested in relationships between people of African, Asian, European, and indigenous heritage in rural and urban communities as they are in the geopolitical relationships between nations and the transnational relationships of groups that defy borders.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Associate Editor Debbie de Wit.
The editors of Critical Latin America prefer that contributors adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style.
*A paperback edition of select titles in the series, for individual purchase only, will be released approximately 12 months after publication of the hardcover edition.
The indigenous cultures of North, Middle and South America, including the Caribbean, have a diverse and fascinating history, reaching from the early pre-colonial past until the present. Modern multidisciplinary research investigates many social, political, economic and religious aspects, such as the population movements, the original development of agriculture, sedentary communities, chiefdoms and early states, the effects of mobility and exchange, the forms, functions and meanings of writing systems and visual art, the indigenous knowledge, technology and organisation as well as cosmovision, rituals, biology and medicine, but also the process of European colonization, which caused major destruction as well as complex intercultural dynamics and synergies.
