The UVAP editorial program focuses primarily on the humanities and social sciences with special concentrations in American history, African American studies, southern studies, literature, ecocriticism, architecture, and regional books.

Meet our Editors

I acquire books in history and politics, with a special focus on American history and politics across five centuries. I also oversee series on Early Modern German and on Southern African history and my portfolio includes academic and trade books on the history and culture of Virginia. As a transnational historian by training, I am excited about manuscripts that put historical developments in broad temporal and geographic contexts and particularly welcome examinations of Americans’ experiences and legacies abroad.

Clayton is Marketing and Sales Associate at the Press and the Assistant Editor for The American South Series and A Nation Divided: Studies in the Civil War Era. He graduated with a BA in History from Pomona College and earned his PhD from the University of Virginia in 2020.
