LACASA Chicago is a publishing house and online resource center focused on Latin and Central American, Caribbean and Latin@ Cultural Studies from a global perspective, but with a current emphasis on Chicago Latin@ Art, Literature and History, as embodied in components II-VI of this website and featuring above all II-IV, The Chicago Latin@ Arts Series (CLAS).
The project that became Global CASA and LACASA Books now reclaims its original rubric as LACASA CHICAGO as we seek to help publish, promote and/or distribute key publications on U.S. and Midwest but above all Chicago Latin@ Studies, as well as works on Central American Studies and other themes. LACASA CHICAGO publishes significant work in its chosen areas of specialization; we also consider listing and helping distribute other relevant books published elsewhere; we often recommend and/or place manuscripts with other, larger or more appropriate publishers.
NOTE: This website is a work in progress—and its improvement largely depends on you the user. Some links will not work and will be eliminated; others don’t enable a return to the website. Other links will be added, as will be photos of artists, writers, artworks, etc . Corrections will be ongoing. Those wishing to report problems, send or suggest additional materials, modifications etc. should write and send attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or comment in LACASA’s Facebook page: La Casa Chicago
