Call for Submissions: HJHP Volume 33

The Harvard Kennedy School Journal of Hispanic Policy (HJHP) invites established and emerging scholars, including students, researchers, journalists, advocates, organizers, artists, and policy practitioners to submit work related to policy issues facing the Latinx community in the United States and Puerto Rico.

The theme of the 2021 volume, “Resilience and Reconciliation,” will explore the socioeconomic inequities highlighted by the pandemic, stories of perseverance in the Latinx community, and opportunities for bold and visionary policy reform. The volume also intends to offer a perspective on anti-Blackness in the Latinx community, historical violence and oppression directed toward indigenous communities, and the growing movement to dismantle symbols of Spanish imperialism. HJHP is accepting research articles, commentaries, book and film reviews, artwork, opinion pieces, and blog submissions relevant to the Latinx community in the United States. All submissions must be the author’s original work.
