2021 American Sociological Association Annual Meeting

We hope you’ll visit our virtual booth for the 2021 American Sociological Association Annual Meeting!

A Message from Senior Editor Lucas Church:

Welcome to our virtual exhibit! Normally, I’d be there to greet you in-person, show you our wonderful titles, and to talk about your own book project. I do hope we can all see each other next year. In the meantime, please take a look at our recent titles in the social sciences.

At UNC Press, we look for sociology projects that examine race, place, sexuality, and class in the United States and beyond. We’re looking for books that tell peoples’ stories in incredible detail—like Karida Brown’s Gone Home­Karla Slocum’s Black Towns, Black Futures, and Brandi Thompson Summers’s Black in Place—or offer deeper ways to think about issues like racism and cultural appropriation, such as in B. Brian Foster’s I Don’t Like the Blues. We’re also known for publishing books that explore prejudice and sexuality, as in Jonathan S. Coley’s Gay on God’s Campus. We’re interested in books that speak to the current moment, while also offering valuable scholarship for future readers, using a variety of methods and approaches. 

If you have a manuscript that looks like it would fit with any of the aforementioned books, please contact me at lucas.church@uncpress.org. I’ll be happy to schedule a meeting with you to discuss your work.
