The Journal was originally housed at the Chicana/Latina Research Center of the University of California at Davis. Then known as Voces, it was published between 1996-2001 under the management of Adaljiza Sosa-Riddell. From 2003 to 2009, the Journal was housed at Loyola Marymount University and was renamed Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social. Under the co-editorship of Karen Mary Davalos (2003-2009), Alicia Partnoy (2003-2006), and Tiffany Ana López (2006-2009), the Journal established itself as an interdisciplinary space of intellectual rigor.
In the Summer of 2009, the Journal transitioned to the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) at the University of Texas at San Antonio under the Editorship of Josie Méndez-Negrete, with Tiffany Ana López serving as co-editor (2009-2011). Additional history on C/LS may be found in Volume 9 (1) under Editor Commentary. In the summer of 2014, the Journal moved to Arizona State University under the co-editorship of Gloria Cuádraz and C. Alejandra Elenes (2014-2017). In the fall of 2017, the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) took on the Journal under the editorship of Sonya M. Alemán (2017-2022). Lilliana P. Saldaña served as co-editor until from 2017 to 2019.
In the summer of 2022, New Mexico State University will house the Journal under the editorship of Judith Flores Carmona.
About Logo for C/LS: We want to thank ASU undergraduate student Lucia Sandoval and “Cultural Sponge” for designing the new logo for the journal. The flower image represents a group of women collectively working together. The swirl symbols on the side of the logo represent speaking out for those who need to be heard. A book and a sun can also be seen, both encompassing growth and change.
