The Most Popular Latin American Newspapers in Northern Louisiana

This article provides an in-depth look into the Spanish-language newspapers published in the United States.

The Public Outcry, Los Angeles, 1855

is one of the most renowned publications in Latin American journalism. The two historic Readex collections represent decades of compilation and a very deliberate plan to preserve, share and expand collections on Latino and Latin American studies. Researchers can find firsthand accounts and commentaries on major events such as the rise and fall of the Mexican Empire, the Mexican Revolution, the Spanish-American War in Cuba (there are, for example, many articles in Spanish and English about Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders that interest American historians), the Brazilian settlement of the Amazon, and many others.

Together, both series of Latin American newspapers narrate the evolution of Latin America over two centuries through eyewitness reports, editorials, legislative information, letters, poetry, announcements, obituaries and other articles. Altogether, they provide more than 30 newspapers and 400,000 government documents that give Latin American researchers access to essential historical information without having to travel to the United States or neighboring countries. Published by Latin American Publishing Company, with commercial offices in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and editorial and administrative offices in the Balter Building, 400 St., these resources offer a wide range of perspectives from different Latin American cultures. Titles from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela and a dozen other countries are included in this collection.

The Latin American newspapers series 1 and 2 (1805-1922) offer unparalleled coverage of the people, issues and events that shaped this vital region during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Created in collaboration with the Center for Research Libraries - one of the largest and most important newspaper repositories in the world - this collection is a core part of the World Newspaper Archive. It includes newspapers in Spanish, Portuguese and French as well as several English-language newspapers from Latin America. The World Newspaper Archive promotes research and offers opportunities to gain new knowledge in a wide range of academic disciplines.

It also includes historic newspapers published in Latin America and South Asia. This article provides an overview of some of the most popular Spanish-language newspapers published in Northern Louisiana. It is important to note that these publications may not be available in all areas. Therefore it is recommended that readers check with their local library or newspaper office to determine which publications are available.
