    Library Resources-Special Collections

    The Learning Commons contains many resources that are relevant to Latina/o theological studies. It actively collects materials in philosophy, theology, and cultural studies related to Latina/o experience in the United States. Full-text databases include access to key journals, in particular, Journal of Latin American Theology, Latin American Indian Literatures Journal, Latin American Research Review, Studies in Latin American Popular Culture, and Religion & American Culture. Spanish-language titles include Estudios Ecclesiásticos, Cuadernos de Teología, 1517 RHIAL, Kairos: Revista Publicada por el Seminario Teológico Centroamericano and Visiones y Herramientas. Special research collections come from the seminary’s former Department of Research and Survey Paper, containing statistical surveys of Mexican-American communities in Chicago covering the 1930s – 1950s.
