About the Journal

REGS (Revista de Estudios de Género y Sexualidades)/JGSS (Journal of Gender and Sexuality Studies) is the journal of the Asociación de Estudios de Género y Sexualidades (AEGS/AGSS Association of Gender and Sexuality Studies). It is one of the earliest academic journals to be devoted strictly to gender-related issues, women authors and feminist theory in the context of Hispanic literatures and cultures, Luso-Brazilian and US-Latino authors, artists, and filmmakers.
The biannual, peer-reviewed journal was first published in Spring 1975 at the University of Colorado, Denver by a progressive group of largely Latin and North American women scholars and writers working in US universities and colleges, and has been published without interruption since then. In addition to critical articles on gender or gender-related topics,
 REGS features unpublished work by Spanish, Latin American and Latino/a authors, poets and playwrights, interviews with writers, artists, filmmakers, and critics, and a substantial book review section in every issue.
REGS is sponsored by AEGS/AGSS and the Department of Romance and Classical Studies at Michigan State University.
