2023 National Women’s Studies Association Annual Meeting

UNC Press is excited to be exhibiting in-person at the NWSA annual meeting! We hope you’ll stop by our booth to say hello to editor Andreína Fernández and to browse our new titles on display. If you can’t join us in-person, you can always visit our virtual booth!

And be sure to check out our Gender & American Culture series!

The Gender and American Culture series, guided by feminist perspectives, examines the social construction and influence of gender and sexuality within the full range of American cultures. Books in the series explore the intersection of gender (both female and male) with such markers of difference as race, class, and region. The series presents outstanding scholarship from all areas of American studies–including history, literature, religion, folklore, ethnography, and the visual arts–that investigates in a thoroughly contextualized and lively fashion the ways in which gender works with and against these markers. In so doing, the series seeks to reveal how these complex interactions have shaped American life.

Series Editors: Martha S. Jones & Mary Kelley
