    • The University of Illinois Press series, Latinos in Chicago and the Midwest, promotes an understanding of regional and historical differences in Latino communities and of the ways in which Latinos in Chicago and throughout the Midwest construct their own sense of Latinidad and cultural difference. It offers new conceptual frameworks for the study of interlatino dynamics in this understudied region as well as comparative studies with other regions in the US and in transnational relations with Latin America. The series editors seek topics that shed new light on the issues that impact Latino/a lives in the Midwest. They welcome inquiries and questions from scholars, journalists, writers, and artists, envisioning a series of books that are not exclusively academic but from a wide array of disciplines and discourses.

    • Centro de Estudios Puertorriqueños director Edwin Melendez and CUNY Dominican Studies Institute director Ramona Hernandez have joined forces to investigate common difficulties in their constituencies and find common strategies to influence the political system. The goal is to challenge the political system into ameliorating these economic, social and educational barriers. “We want to understand where the points of contact are in inter-ethnic relations, and not just between Dominicans and Puerto Ricans, but also among all ethnicities,” Meléndez said. The Centro-CUNY DSI partnership has called for research proposals focusing on the interactions between these two Latino communities and their relationship with other Hispanic, racial and ethnic groups. The resulting academic papers will be presented at a major forum currently planned for May 2015, and considered for publication in a special issue of the peer-reviewed CENTRO Journal. Deadline: Open.
