Our Working Papers series, launched in 2014–15, focuses primarily on translations of works-in-progress by Latin American scholars who visit the University of Chicago. They have the opportunity to discuss their work with our students and faculty, and we share their work with new audiences through online dissemination. Through the Working Papers series, we make available cutting-edge research from Latin America that was previously unavailable to English-speaking audiences.

Copyright for the Working Papers is retained by the author(s). This series is offered as a public service and materials may be reproduced for research and educational purposes, provided proper citation and credit are included.
