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, or chat with one of our editors — Mark Simpson-Vos, Brandon Proia, Debbie Gershenowitz, or Andrew Winters.


You can learn about our new books just published in these great book series:


New books from The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture

New books just released in paperback for immediate course adoption.


NEW SERIES ANNOUNCEMENT: LATINX HISTORIES

As a leading publisher of American and Latin American history, UNC Press is delighted to announce the launch of Latinx Histories, a book series premised on the view that understanding Latinx history is essential to a more complete and complex understanding of the history of the United States, the Americas, and the world. The series editors and advisory board welcome book proposals that examine and offer a historical framework for the experiences of Latinx people ranging from earliest indigenous settlement in what is now known as the United States through the present-day transnational U.S. and beyond, resulting in a collection of innovative historical works that push the boundaries of race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, migration, and nationalism within and around Latinx communities.

Co-editors:
Lori Flores, Stony Brook University
Michael Innis-Jiménez, University of Alabama

Editorial Advisory Board:
Llana Barber, SUNY Old Westbury
Adrian Burgos, University of Illinois
Geraldo Cadava, Northwestern University
Julio Capó, Jr., Florida International University
Miroslava Chavez-Garcia, University of California, Santa Barbara
María Cristina García, Cornell University
Ramón Gutierréz, University of Chicago
Paul Ortiz, University of Florida
