Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the American Sociological Association.
Since we can’t be together at the conference, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.
From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with our editor Lucas Church, learn about our new books in our Studies in Social Medicine Series, and more.
Meet Lucas Church:
The events of the past few months have brought new attention to subjects like police brutality, institutionalized racism, protests and activism, and more. These subjects are among the pillars of the UNC Press publishing program, and have cast new light on some of our newest books, and some of our classic bestselling titles.
Some of these books are highlighted in our Justice, Power, and Politics series.
You can also check out our full listing of new and classic books in African American Studies.
All of our books (in fact, our entire site) are available now at our 40 percent ASA conference discount. Plus if your order totals $75, domestic U.S. shipping is FREE! Just use promo code 01DAH40 at checkout.

We’ve even created a handy FAQ document, with answers to the most-asked questions we get at exhibit booths.
