Series description

Series Editors: Walter D. Mignolo, Irene Silverblatt, Sonia Saldívar-Hull

"The Latin America Otherwise book series was initiated in 1997, in the heated debates on the crisis of area studies in the United States (for which Latin America was an object of study). In Latin America the growing intellectual, literary, artistic and social thoughts was showing that rather than an object Latin America was an incredible potent place of “independent thought in search of South American and Caribbean Freedom.” In 10 years we accomplished a lot, and history has helped us. Indigenous scholars and intellectuals flourished in the Andes, Southern Mexico and Central America. The reach legacies of English, French and Spanish Caribbean social thoughts, literary production and artistic creativity have grown with us. The Latino/as in the US had also sedimented their presence in the life of a increasingly epistemica and artistically diverse country. “Latin American Otherwise, Second Epoch” would like to increase the publication of works by scholars, intellectuals and artists from different spheres of South and Central America, Andean, Caribbean and Latino/as and to make a stronger contribution in the field of artistic creativity, artistic and literary theories, social thoughts, and philosophical debates emerging from the ethnic, gender and sexual diversity in Latin America intellectual field. In this way, our initial intent of recognizing that Latin America as a the name of a subcontinent and at the same time to acknowledge that it respond to an epoch and to the interests of certain sector of the population in Latin America and to a certain spheres of the scholarship in the US an Western Europe, will be maintained and the quest toward the next stage in the global order will continue."

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
