We’re pleased to share a Q&A with Andrew R. Graybill and Benjamin H. Johnson, series editors of our David J. Weber Series in the New Borderlands History.

This series explores contested boundaries and the intercultural dynamics surrounding them and includes projects in a wide range of time and space within North America and beyond, including Atlantic and Pacific worlds. Series editors welcome outstanding works that “speak back” to the rich literature that has developed over the last few decades, using the concept of borderlands to examine, analyze, and interpret both the North American borderlands and other areas connected to continental processes of making and crossing borders.

We are also pleased to announce two new members of the editorial advisory board for the David J. Weber Series. They are:

  • Ruben Flores, University of Rochester
  • Debbie Kang, University of Texas, Dallas

This interview is part of our virtual exhibit for the Western History Association 2020 Conference, which is ongoing through October 17, 2020. Check out the UNC Press #WHA2020 virtual exhibit here.
