Translating the Americas is a digital platform for publication and open access distribution of translations of important, previously published articles and book chapters. The aim is to support collaborations between members of the University of Michigan faculty and overseas colleagues, to disseminate the research of UM faculty by making it available in Spanish, Portuguese or Kreyol, and to provide and distribute important resources for teaching and research about Latin America and the Caribbean not currently available in English. This effort is supported by a Title VI grant from the United States Department of Education, by the University of Michigan Brazil Initiative (Office of the President), and through a collaboration with Michigan Publishing.

Política común is a bilingual (English-Spanish) open access journal engaged in the task of rethinking the projection of Hispanic/Latin American Studies in the current global academic field. With particular emphasis on work of a comparative nature and with a basis in theory, the journal is committed to reevaluating the history and theory of the social bond by moving beyond the standard elements of the academic field—namely, language, culture, and literature. Política común sponsors relevant philological research while encouraging an expansion of the field towards political and historical thought, intellectual history in the largest sense of the term, visual culture, and psychoanalytic theory.
