Aims and scope

The International Journal of Latin American Religions publishes research and review articles, interviews, conference reports and book reviews that contribute to the scientific study of the history and present situation of Latin American religions, both in the region and among Latin American minorities in different parts of the world. It adopts a multidisciplinary perspective, so it’s open to contributions from different areas of the human sciences, such as sociology, history, psychology, anthropology and comparative religion.

The main aims of the journal are to bring Latin American scholarship to a broader audience, to provide new insights and comparative perspectives in issues of common interest of a transnational web of researchers and to contribute to the exchange of relevant knowledge among scholars dedicated to the scientific study of Latin American religions.

The International Journal of Latin American Religions counts with the academic support of the graduate program in Religious Studies of the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo.
