We invite scholars and experts to contribute to our special issue about Latin America’s Cold War. We are particularly interested in original articles drawing on research from Latin American and former Third World countries’ archives.

Special Issue: "Latin America and the Cold War"

Recent studies on Latin America’s Cold War have significantly advanced our understanding of the region and its historical, political, economic, and social dynamics during the Cold War period. These studies, based on new sources from public and private archives in Latin America, the United States, the Soviet Union, and other countries as well as international organizations, have challenged simplistic narratives of the Cold War as a binary conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union. They have also highlighted the agency of Latin American governments and local actors by revisiting familiar Cold War events and shedding light on new themes such as the role of culture, ideology, gender, and race.

We invite scholars and experts to contribute to our special issue about Latin America’s Cold War. We are particularly interested in original articles drawing on research from Latin American and former Third World countries’ archives, on subjects such as (but not limited to):

- The role of Latin American governments and local actors in the global Cold War
- Popular interpretations and adaptations of Cold War ideologies
- Relations with Non-Aligned and Third World movements / countries
- Gender and sexuality in the making of domestic and foreign policies
- Race and Ethnicity
- Moderate and reformist political forces during the Cold War
- The role of experts and technicians
- Impact of modernization and development ideologies
- Coordinated efforts to reform inter-American relations
- Economic history of Latin America during the Cold War
- Cultural and artistic expressions reflecting and influencing Cold War tensions
