We wish we could be meeting authors and readers in-person at the Association for American Geographers Annual Conference. We know that many of you look forward to stocking up on new titles at special discounts at our conferences, so we are pleased to offer a 40% discount on all in-stock books and journal issues with coupon code AAG21 until May 31, 2021.
Check out the latest geography titles in our virtual catalog, below. And explore all of our books and journals in geography at dukeupress.edu. Since we cannot take photos of authors with their new books in our booth, this year, we instead offer an album of book selfies they have taken from home.
Executive Editor Courtney Berger has a welcome message for AAG attendees.
While I’ve been attending the AAG conference for quite a few years now, it was only in 2019 that the press set up a full book exhibit at the conference. And AAG-ers, you welcomed us with open arms. It was exciting to witness in person the enthusiasm for Duke’s books and the wide-ranging and interdisciplinary interests of the scholars who visited our booth. We haven’t been able to gather in person since then, but we still have plenty of new and important books for you to browse on our website. I’m especially excited about recent books from Katherine McKittrick, Louise Amoore, Rosemary-Claire Collard, Christopher Harker, Hagar Kotef, Candace Fujikane, and Thea Riofrancos. Katherine McKittrick’s book, Dear Science and Other Stories, kicks off the Errantries book series, edited by Simone Browne, Deborah Cowen, and Katherine McKittrick. Keep an eye on this series, which features “radical, interdisciplinary, and theoretically rigorous scholarship that explores geographies of race, anticolonial thought, and rebellious methodologies.” More groundbreaking and rebellious work is coming!
I hope that next year I will be seeing you all in person and showing off our new books in the booth. Until then, please feel free to contact me directly or you can submit a proposal to me through our online submissions portal.
Registered AAS attendees can join Tiffany Lethobo King for an author-meets-critic panel about The Black Shoals, Saturday, April 10, 12:35-1:50PM EST/9:35-10:50 AM PDT.
This year Katherine McKittrick will deliver the 2021 Antipode AAG Lecture, “Dear April: The Aesthetics of Black Miscellanea,” Thursday, April 8, 6:05-7:20PM EST/3:05-4:20PM PDT.
