A multidisciplinary journal

Mesoamérica is a scholarly journal of the humanities and social sciences, devoted to the study of the region stretching from southeastern Mexico to Panama. Since 1982, it has appeared in Spanish, featuring articles by Latin American, North American, and European authors, with a focus on anthropology, ethnography, political science, geography, history, demography, and other disciplines.

For 28 years, the journal Mesoamérica was edited by Julio Castellanos Cambranes, Christopher H. Lutz, Cherri M. Pancake, Armando J. Alfonzo, and W. George Lovell. With its General Index (2008) it produced 50 issues. Christophe Belaubre and Jordana Dym took the reins from 2009-2013, and Justin Wolfe and Aaron Schneider from 2014-2016. Now, beginning 2021, the journal is under the editorial direction of Walter E. Little (University at Albany, State University of New) and the Board of Directors of the Institute for Mesoamerican Studies. The Institute for Mesoamerican Studies is non-profit educational research institute dedicated to the study and dissemination of knowledge concerning the peoples and cultures of Mesoamerican (Mexico and northern Central America). Mesoamérica is an interdisciplinary journal of Central American and Mexican studies peer reviewed by colleagues across the disciplines with emphasis on Indigenous cultures.

The new editorial team intends to maintain the high quality that made Mesoamérica what it is today--one of the most important Spanish-language publications for social science scholarship on Central America, that reaches readers in Latin America, North America and Europe. It is published by Plumsock Mesoamerican Studies, a not-for-profit publisher and organization based in Wellfleet, MA. Plumsock Mesoamerican Studies, affiliated with CIRMA, the Centro de Investigaciones Regionales de Mesoamérica en La Antigua Guatemala. It, also, co-publishes with other academic Latin American and Spanish institutions.
