In this guide, you will find research tools from various resources and subject areas related to feminist and gender studies in Latin America and the Caribbean. We have compiled just a fraction of the material available at the library. Please, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Antonio Sotomayor for more information:
Welcome to the Research Guide to Latin American and Caribbean Feminist and Gender Studies. The purpose of this guide is to provide direction and access to resources on LA&C feminist and gender studies available to students, staff, faculty, and visiting scholars at the University of Illinois Library. In addition to highlighting print resources in the collection, the guide also provides information about e-resources across the region. Although most of the material presented here is available in our collection (physical and virtual), you will also find sources openly available in the internet.
The Latin American and Caribbean feminist and gender studies collection at Illinois includes books, e-books, edited collections, media resources, and journal databases among other formats, and published in Spanish, English, Portuguese, and French. There are also some special items from early Latin American feminists available in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library providing insights to exceptional women and thinkers. While this guide aims to be comprehensive, some researchers might need extra assistance with particular topics. We encourage you to contact Prof. Antonio Sotomayor, Librarian of Latin America and Caribbean Studies, for further assistance.
