Abstract

Latin American migrants have had an increasing presence in Australia since the 1960s and constitute a sizeable community today. Yet, despite their growing size and contributions in the Australian context, our knowledge about this migrant group (or collection of migrant groups) is still limited. The publications that do exist explore some important themes, such as the country origins and migration experiences of Latin Americans in Australia, the adaptation processes of Latin American people to life in their new country, and the formation and consolidation of diaspora(s) of peoples from this region. However, research in this area is still sparse.
