Liverpool University Press to publish the Bulletin of Contemporary Hispanic Studies from 2019

Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce it will be publishing the Bulletin of Contemporary Hispanic Studies from 2019.

The Bulletin of Contemporary Hispanic Studies (BHCS) is an exciting new development building on the long-standing success of the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, founded by Edgar Allison Peers in 1923. The BCHS will focus on contemporary scholarship across all areas of the Hispanic world. It is envisaged that the BCHS will become a front-ranking journal in the field of Hispanic research and it will be supported by an editorial committee bringing recognised research expertise across a wide range of contemporary Hispanic scholarship.

The journal’s interests, although devoted to contemporary scholarship, are broad-ranging in terms of geography, genre, and focus. Our interests cover the linguistic areas of Spanish, Portuguese, Galician, Catalan, Basque and any of the Amerindian languages. The BCHS welcomes articles in the areas of contemporary literature, linguistics, cultural history, film and visual arts, cultural and gender studies, or on any aspects of contemporary Hispanic Studies.

The first issue will be published in May 2019.

Anthony Cond, Director of Liverpool University Press said:

‘The Bulletin of Contemporary Hispanic Studies is the latest in a long line of publications from LUP that have served the wider fields of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies.  Built on the strong foundation of the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, and published alongside LUP’s Contemporary Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures book series, BCHS will be a major venue for the highest quality research in contemporary Hispanic Studies.’

Diana Cullell, General Editor commented:

‘The Bulletin of Contemporary Hispanic Studies aims to build on the success of the Bulletin of Hispanic Studies, offering a new vision for the future of the discipline. The BCHS will open up new avenues and publish the latest scholarship in Hispanic Studies. I am genuinely excited to be leading this new venture, and we warmly welcome submissions for our future issues.’
