Our acquisitions editors are still eager to connect with current and prospective authors about new projects and book proposals.

If you have a project you’d like to discuss, please get in touch with one of our editors:

 

Larin McLaughlin, Editor in Chief

Critical ethnic studies; American studies; Asian American studies; women’s, gender, and sexuality studies; Native and Indigenous studies; visual culture

 

Mike Baccam, Acquisitions Editor
