UCL Institute of the Americas


Research Publications


As part of its commitment to promoting research on the Americas, the Institute is pleased to house the Palgrave Macmillan series Studies of the Americas Series, under the editorship of Professor Maxine Molyneux.

Titles include cross-disciplinary and comparative research on the US, Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada, particularly in the areas of politics, economics, history, anthropology, sociology, development, gender, social policy and the environment. Information on recent and forthcoming publications can be found here.

The series includes edited collections, which allows an exploration of a topic from several different disciplinary angles by eminent scholars; book-length studies providing a deeper focus on a single topic; and readers on specific themes. Various members of academic staff at UCL Institute of the Americas are published authors in this series.

Proposals for consideration are welcomed and should be sent to m.molyneux@ucl.ac.uk  Guidance for authors on the preparation of a proposal is set out on the Palgrave website

UCL Press

UCL Press publishes a variety of series to meet the needs of today's academics. Its open access Modern Americas series publishes books on the culture, politics, and history of the Americas from the nineteenth century to the present day. The series aims to foster national, international, trans-national, and comparative approaches to topics in the region, including those that bridge geographical and/or disciplinary divides, such as between the disparate parts of the hemisphere covered by the series (the US, Latin America, Canada, and the Caribbean) or between the humanities and social/natural sciences. 

The series invites proposals for monographs and edited volumes from scholars in all disciplines. The editors will also consider publication-ready translations of works that have originally appeared in Spanish, French, or Portuguese. Please contact the series editors Claire Lindsay, Tony McCulloch, Maxine Molyneux and Kate Quinn for further details.
