Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the American Society for Environmental History.
Scroll through our newest releases!
If you are not able to be with us 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 Maria Garcia, learn about our new Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges Series, and more.
Listen to a podcast of Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges series editors Harriet Ritvo and Mart Stewart in conversation with UNC Press editor Brandon Proia recorded in the spring of 2020 about COVID-19, differing responses to the pandemic, and the value of thinking historically in the face of the unthinkable.
