The journal Relaciones. Estudios de Historia y Sociedad publishes original, previously unpublished, peer-reviewed (double blind) studies in History, the Social Sciences and the Humanities, including articles, essays and analyses of important historical documents, as well as book reviews, that contribute to enhancing our understanding of Mexico and its realities in both historical and contemporary contexts. Opening windows for comparison, Relaciones examines topics concerning Mesoamerica, New Spain and Mexico in relation to the rest of the Americas, Europe and other areas of the world. The journal maintains two key axes, one theoretical-methodological, the other thematic. The first seeks to nourish the multidisciplinary connections that allow us to comprehend complex social and historical processes from diverse perspectives; the second underscores the relation between political and cultural traditions or modernities in multiple, interwoven domains that form part of the process of the social formation of universes both past and present. Relaciones is published for a broad academic audience that includes researchers, professors, students and all those interested in the Social and Human Sciences and related disciplines.
