What I’m looking for: I’m particularly interested in interdisciplinary projects, and/or those situated in cultural studies, media studies, history, literature, Latinx studies, public health, human geography, political science, popular culture, sociology, anthropology, or other related fields. I am currently seeking monographs for all of my series: Abnormativities: Queer/Gender/Embodiment; Formations: Adoption, Kinship, and Culture; Global Latino/a Americas; and Race and Mediated Cultures.

Want to talk to me about your book or learn more about The Ohio State University Press? I'm holding live chats on Zoom from 3-4pm EST on Saturdays during the conference (October 16th and November 20th), or you can schedule a one-on-one meeting at the link below. I love talking about the work we’re doing and how we can partner with scholars, so please don’t hesitat to reach out—and email me if one of the available times doesn't work for you.
