This new scholarly journal from UNR’s Latino Research Center aims to contextualize the demographic trends of Latinos in Nevada. Edited by artist and professor Emma Sepulveda, the journal casts a wide topical net, addressing retention rates of Spanish over generations and a proposed congressional act that would allow college-educated children of undocumented immigrants to seek citizenship. The journal’s tone will most appeal to readers accustomed to the constraints of academic text, but if Border-Lines is still seeking its conversational stride, it can already mark clear successes: its ability to invite discussion about the continual give and take between cultures and to look at national trends through a local lens.
