National Hispanic Heritage Month, also recognized as Latinx Heritage Month, (September 15-October 15) celebrates the history and contributions of Americans from or with ancestors from Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain, and Central and South America. 

We recognize “Hispanic,” “Latino/a,” and “Latinx” are all highly contested terms of identity that oversimplify the diversity of people and studies from those regions. At ACLS, our intentions are not to be exclusionary or use these terms interchangeably. Instead, we are observing this month to reflect on and share the scholarly work being produced about these regions and the diaspora.

We invited our global community of fellows to share links and PDFs of existing readings, research, curricula, published works, or other resources that they authored or recommend to share with our community that can help in education and reflection on this important area of study.
