Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the American Anthropological 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 Where Religion Lives Series, and more.
Connect with editor Lucas Church, whose acquisition interests include humanities and social sciences, especially sociology, anthropology, literary studies, history of medicine, and social science approaches to health, medicine, and culture.
Have questions about whether UNC Press is the right publisher for you, or how to submit a proposal? Visit our For Prospective Authors page.
