Pasó por Aquí Series on the Nuevomexicano Literary Heritage
Enrique Lamadrid, A. Gabriel Meléndez, and Genaro M. Padilla, Series Editors
The Pasó por Aquí Series emerged in the 1990s from the Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Project, a gathering of scholars from universities across the United States engaged in recovering Hispanic works of literature and history that were published before 1960. While the goal of the series is the recovery of the Hispanic literary heritage of greater New Mexico, the editors recognize that part of the project also includes publishing new fiction and poetry in order to preserve a literary tradition that is often thematically, linguistically, and culturally interconnected. Moreover, scholarship in allied fields lends greater intellectual coherence to the series, and we therefore encourage the collection of photography, historical documents, religious artifacts, and other aspects of expressive culture in varied forms.
