Welcome to the UNC Press Virtual Exhibit for the Society of Early Americanists.
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 an acquisitions editor, and more.
You can also check out the newest books published by the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, and chat with Editor of Books Catherine E. Kelly.
Please join the OI’s Cathy Kelly and Josh Piker on Friday March 5th at 9am on the SEA Live Stage 5 for a roundtable conversation on Publishing, Professionalism, and the Junior Scholar.
