Regeneración: A Xicanacimiento Studies Journal is committed to depicting the intellectual, cultural, and historic experiences pertinent to Chicanas, Chicanos, and Chicanxs and the field of Chicana/o/x Studies. The journal promotes collective knowledge as disseminated in multilingual, and multimedia formats. As an open-access e-journal, Regeneración: A Xicanacimiento Studies Journal has the ability to widely disseminate perspectives on cultural, intellectual, and historic themes.
We envision Xicanacimiento Studies as a regenerating force of collective knowledges that affirms life giving and intergenerational relational practices or solidarities. The journal promotes the applications of diverse methods and interdisciplinary perspectives in the study of the present and past to imagine radical interpretations of the future. This means critically examining Chicana/o/x history, philosophy and culture, as well as the historic and social implications of colonialism, racism, capitalism, sexism, and heteronormativity on and within Chicana/o/x communities. In line with this mission, the journal will provide a forum for dialogue on autonomy, dignity, liberation, and self-determination.
The journal promotes the work being done by students, educators, academics, community members, activists, poets, and creative culture producers. In this way, Regeneración: A Xicanacimiento Studies Journal will center diverse perspectives on knowledge creation and experiences grounded in the ancestral and communal knowledge systems of the Americas.
