Description: Founded in 1918, the Hispanic American Historical Review (HAHR) pioneered the study of Latin American history and culture in the United States. Today it maintains a distinguished tradition of publishing vital work across thematic, chronological, regional, and methodological specializations, and it stands as the most widely respected journal in the field. HAHR's comprehensive book review section provides commentary -- ranging from brief notices to review essays -- on every facet of scholarship on Latin American history and culture. With the publication of one special issue each year, the journal continues to deepen its commitment to diverse, interdisciplinary perspectives in the social sciences and humanities by focusing on provocative themes and new theoretical and methodological approaches. Recent and forthcoming special issue topics include Mexican cultural history, colonial Brazil, and gender and sexuality in Latin America.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
