Journal of the Southwest

Journal of the Southwest was founded in 1959 as Arizona and the West, the first journal of Western American history in the United States, and began publishing in its current format in 1987 as a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed quarterly dedicated to an integrated regional study of the American Southwest,  northern Mexico, and the US-Mexico borderlands. For more than half a century it has stood alone in general academic publishing: an award-winning journal representing a transborder region of world-historical significance. Journal of the Southwest publishes broadly across disciplines including intellectual and social history, gender and women’s studies, LGBTQ studies, anthropology, archaeology, architecture, folklore, politics, borderlands studies, literature, photography, geography, and natural history and ecology.
