I seek to publish broadly accessible, serious works of history that appeal to an audience beyond the academy. I am particularly interested in histories of race, environment, politics, social movements, prisons, policing, capitalism, and empire. I primarily acquire works drawn from African American history, environmental history, intellectual history, and the history of the South.

I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a B.A. in English and Creative Writing. I worked at Cabinet Magazine, Basic Books, Basic Civitas, and Public Affairs before joining the Press in 2013.
