David J. Weber Series in New Borderlands History

In honor and memory  of the work of the late David J. Weber, the Clements Center is pleased to announce a new books series in collaboration with the University of North Carolina Press which will explore boundaries and borderlands.  The series will focus on contested boundaries and the intercultural dynamics surrounding them, from the pre-contact era to the present, and will include projects across a wide range of time and space, within North America and beyond including the Atlantic and Pacific world. The series will use innovative methods and concepts to examine, analyze, and interpret both sets of North American border regions as well as other areas connected to processes of making, crossing, and breaking borders worldwide.  The Center will offer publication subventions for all series volumes.
