ASEH Virtual Exhibit

Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the American Society for Environmental History.

UNC Press ASEH Exhibit

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 Brandon Proia, learn about our new Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges Series, and more.

FME Series books
Books published in the Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges Series

Listen to a podcast of Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges series editors Harriet Ritvo and Mart Stewart in conversation with UNC Press editor Brandon Proia about COVID-19, differing responses to the pandemic, and the value of thinking historically in the face of the unthinkable.
