Emigration/Immigration, Feminism, Domestic Violence, Religion, Education, Activism, Human Rights, Race, Homosexuality, Masculinity, Literature, Cinema, Theatre, Art, Sports, and Health are possible areas of focus. Articles using a comparative approach (examining a particular theme in Ireland and Latin America/Caribbean), and complementary articles by different authors on a similar theme, one article based in Ireland the other in Latin America/Caribbean, will also be considered. Articles may be placed in a historical or contemporary setting.

Articles should be submitted to the Editor in Chief by 15 July 2012. Articles related to the general theme of this journal will also be considered. Scholarly articles should be between two and five thousand words. The editors also welcome book, film and website reviews, edited discussions of primary documents, photo essays, and short biographies related to the topic of the special issue, and to the general theme of the journal.
