HC-274493-20

University of North Carolina Press (Chapel Hill, NC 27515-2288)
John E. Sherer (Project Director: May 2020 to October 2021)
Sustaining High-Impact Humanities Publishing at the University of North Carolina Press

Salaries for eight staff members whose employment is at risk due to a significant decrease in book sale revenues for FY2021.

The University of North Carolina Press brings high-impact humanities content to a wide range of audiences through the books we publish, through our expansion of access to scholarship as a vital member of the University of North Carolina System, through our partnerships with other university presses seeking leadership in publishing services and open access models, and through our relationships with organizations that collectively advance the humanities in communities across the country. Facing a projected 30-40% decrease in book sale revenues for Fiscal Year 2021 resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, the Press risks losing as many as eight staff members. UNC Press requests NEH CARES funding to cover six months of salary and benefits for seven existing staff, and four months of salary and benefits for one acquisition editor to fill a vacancy created by a recent retirement.
