Meet the Editor: Nate Holly

Studio Portrait of Nathaniel Holly

[email protected]

I joined the Press in the summer of 2019 shortly after receiving my Ph.D. in early American history from William & Mary. I also hold degrees from Western Carolina University (M.A. American History/Cherokee Studies) and Clemson University (BA Philosophy).

Most of my acquisitions orbit around the ever-expanding field(s) of American history. I am especially interested in projects that employ interdisciplinary methodologies, articulate a bold argument, and use particular historical perspectives to recast seemingly well-known narratives—or illuminate little-known stories.

I’m still publishing some of my own scholarly work which focuses on the urban lives of eighteenth-century Cherokees, public memory, and indigenous archival construction. You can read my work in the North Carolina Historical ReviewHistory Compass, and Early Modern Women. And when I’m not chasing my toddler around, I root for the once-mighty Newcastle United and the Clemson Tigers. I also enjoy reading microhistories, nature and environmental writing, biographies of interesting intellectuals, sci-fi, and all sorts of creative nonfiction.
