A Contracorriente: Objectives

Objectives | Objetivos | Español

Founded in 2003 as a refereed, electronic journal designed to stimulate left-wing sociohistorical analyses of Latin American literature and to counteract the relativism present in poststructuralism and postmodernism, A Contracorriente evolved, shortly thereafter, as a journal dedicated to Latin American studies. It aims to foster intellectual debate about Latin American politics, history, economics, literature and culture from left-wing and Marxist points of view. We welcome essays, notes, interviews and reviews on gender, society, politics, history and cultural studies which depart from the isms since the 1950s and which delve into particular historical, political and cultural moments and explore the role of ideology in Latin America. We publish in English, Spanish and Portuguese and in issues that come out tri-quarterly.
