2022 American Sociological Association Annual Meeting

Although UNC Press will not be attending the American Sociological Association annual meeting in-person this year, you can still visit our virtual booth to browse our recent titles and to connect with editor Lucas Church.

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. Due to some of the ongoing public health emergencies, we’re being cautious and will be attending ASA remotely this year. 

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 Anima Adjepong’s Afropolitan Projects,  Karida Brown’s Gone Home­, 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.
