SHEAR 2021

Welcome to the SHEAR 2021 Virtual Exhibit

SHEAR logo The 2021 Annual Meeting of the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic has arrived. Since we can’t get together at the exhibit hall, let’s get together here! Below you’ll find the same kind of information we’d make available at our SHEAR exhibit: news about new books, a chance to meet with an editor, and more.

And, from now until August 17th, we’re offering a 40% conference discount with free shipping (on orders over $25.00). Use code 08SHEAR21 at checkout.

Meet Our Early American History Editor

Studio Portrait of Nathaniel Holly
Nathaniel Holly
Acquisitions Editor

I acquire projects in Early American and colonial history from any of these varied perspectives: African American, Atlantic World, Caribbean, indigenous, labor, and legal. I am very interested in hearing about Open Access projects, as well as traditional publishing projects.

I’d be happy to talk to you about your work. Please get in touch and let me know how you’d like to connect: phone, email, or Zoom meeting.

Although not necessary before we meet, if you’d like to submit a full book proposal, please click here for general guidelines.

Meet Our Authors

Learn about two of our newest books in our Early American Places series! Kelly Houston Jones and Adam J. Pratt talk about their new books, A Weary Land: Slavery on the Ground in Arkansas and Toward Cherokee Removal: Land, Violence, and the White Man’s Chance.
