Academic Journal Publishing and the Journal of Gender and Sexuality Studies

Today, we kick off the new season with a discussion of one of MSU Press’s ten award-winning academic journals: Revista de Estudios de Género y Sexualidades, or, the Journal of Gender and Sexuality Studies, with the journal's editor in chief Rocío Quispe-Agnoli and José Badillo Carlos, the journal’s first editorial assistant.

Revista de Estudios de Género y Sexualidades is the journal of the Association of Gender and Sexuality Studies. First published in the spring of 1975 at the University of Colorado, Denver, REGS is one of the earliest academic journals devoted to gender-related issues, women authors, and feminist theory in the contexts of Hispanic literatures and cultures. Published biannually in a mix of Spanish and English, the journal includes critical articles on gender studies topics; unpublished work by Spanish, Latin American, and Latino/a authors, poets, and playwrights; interviews with writers, artists, filmmakers, and critics; and a substantial book review section in every issue.

In addition serving as the editor of REGS, Dr. Quispe-Agnoli is Professor of (Post) Colonial Latin American Studies with affiliations in the American Indian Studies Program and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Michigan State University. Dr. Quispe-Agnoli is also a well-published author of both academic and creative works, most recently Women’s Negotiations and Textual Agency in Latin America, 1500-1799 (Routledge 2017). José Badillo Carlos is a PhD candidate in Hispanic Cultural Studies and is currently finishing his doctoral dissertation on Mexico’s corruption and violence in contemporary cultural productions.
