The Ohio University Press New Approaches to Appalachian Studies series grew out of the Series in Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in Appalachia. While negative and positive stereotypes about the region abound, a new interest in contemporary Appalachia provides a welcome urgency for well-evidenced and insightful books about all aspects of Appalachian life, history, and culture.
The New Approaches to Appalachian Studies series seeks to engage Appalachia in its full complexity of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, as well as the many confluences of cultures, peoples, politics, and places over time. The series aims to publish books in a range of academic disciplines as well as engaged fiction and trade nonfiction.
