Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Southern Association for Women Historians.
Scroll through our newest releases!
We’re looking forward to getting together at the conference. But in case you won’t be traveling this year, we’re bringing our book exhibit to you.
From virtually anywhere, you can browse our list of new and recent titles, chat with one of our acquisitions editors, check out new titles in our Gender and American Culture series, and more.
And check out this post on the UNC Press Blog, celebrating the SAWH’s 50th Anniversary.
Recent events continue to bring new attention to subjects like police brutality, institutionalized racism, protests and activism, and more. These subjects are among the pillars of the UNC Press publishing program, and have cast new light on some of our newest books, and some of our classic bestselling titles.
Some of these books are highlighted in our Justice, Power, and Politics series.
You can also check out our full listing of new and classic books in African American Studies.
