UP Week banner 2016


We have celebrated the theme of Community for the past several days with our sibling publishers in the Association of American University Presses’ #UPweek. Today we invite you into our own virtual rolodex to introduce you to just some of the many partner organizations with whom we have collaborated to make many of your favorite books and journals possible.

It’s #FollowFriday, and we want to celebrate some of our long term relationships. These LTRs help make up the UNC Press community of thinkers and doers, instigators and activators, marathoners and sprinters. They help make us who we are, and they help us bring excellent work into print. We’re lucky to work with them.

@UNCSouth – The UNC Center for the Study of the American South, a UNC campus neighbor with a great house (and great porch parties!), our partner in publishing books like Dixie Highway, Lumbee Indians in the Jim Crow South, and Freedom’s Teacher, and the fabulous Southern Cultures journal (@SCquarterly).

@OIEAHC – The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Virginia, with whom we have published hundreds of volumes, including classics like The Adams-Jefferson Letters, White over Black, and Women of the Republic.

Clements Center  – The William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies at SMU, with whom we have published award-winners and classroom favorites such as Peace Came in the Form of a Woman and Seeds of Empire.

@CDSDuke – The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, with whom we have collaborated on visual and audio documentary projects such as Reality Radio and One Place.

@NCArtsCouncil – The North Carolina Arts Council, with whom we showcase the rich cultural heritage of our state, including Blue Ridge Music Trails of North Carolina and African American Music Trails of Eastern North Carolina.

So go get social with these friends of ours. Celebrate #UPweek by celebrating the community of this university press that reaches far and wide and runs so deep.
