Tezcatlipoca is a new, independent electronic journal that will feature essays, articles and research relating to Chicana /o Studies. The journal is dedicated to the presentation of original work of the highest caliber and to the advancement of the field of Chicana/o Studies. The journal's primary focus is on critical analysis, theory, and research relating to Chicana/o history, culture, literature and art, and to the Chicana/o experience in general.

Tezcatlipoca will be published in one volume per academic year, adding new articles to current volumes twice yearly. A selection of the best articles appearing in a given volume may be published in print format at the end of the academic year.

The journal will include a general section, a polemics section (Rayo), a history section, a culture section (including literature and art), a section on myth, a book review section, and a working glossary of Chicana/o language (e.g. Calo, Pocho, Pachuco, etc.).

The editors invite scholarly papers and well-researched articles in history, the social sciences, the arts and the humanities, and book reviews. We particularly welcome contributions to the feature section, Rayo, which will include polemics, letters, and dialogues by Tezcatlipoca readers. Rayo will offer readers a space for polemics, incisive critique, the airing of differences, responses to previously published Tezcatlipoca articles, and dialogue. We wish to emphasize our call for contributions to the Chicana/o glossary, which aims to gather a full lexicon of Chicana/o words perhaps for the first time. Please include definitions and variance with submissions to Glossary & Terms (any number of submissions to Glossary & Terms is welcome).

Articles: up to 20 double-spaced, typed pages (10 - 11 point type); number pages; endnotes only.

Book reviews: up to 4 double-spaced, typed pages (10-11 point type); number pages; endnotes only. Include full book title, author(s), editor(s), edition, publisher, place of publication, number of pages, cost for hard back and paperback editions, and ISBN.

Your name and address must appear on the first page of your submission. Please send 2 copies of all hard copy submissions.

Formatting: Highly preferred : .wpd, .doc, .pdf or .html formats. Submissions sent on diskettes must be accompanied by 2 printed copies. (Please inquire first about email submissions to: Ingrid Swanberg, Managing Editor, iswanbe@tezcatlipoca.org or through the address given below.)

Submissions of entries for the glossary or to the Rayo section should follow the same formatting guidelines as for articles and book reviews.

Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope large enough to accommodate return of your manuscript, or, if you don\t wish your manuscript to be returned, send only a standard (#10) letter sized self-addressed, stamped envelope for our reply.

Publication in Tezcatlipoca is determined by the editors, with possible review by an outside expert in a relevant field. Consulting editors will be announced as special projects arise. If submitting previously published material, please identify publisher, date of publication, and copyright holder.

Address all submissions and inquiries to: Tezcatlipoca, Prospero Saiz, Editor-in-Chief 956 Van Hise Hall, University of Wisconsin -Madison 1220 Linden Drive, Madison, WI 53706. psaiz@tezcatlipoca.org
