University Press Week 2020

It’s University Press Week! University Press Week highlights the extraordinary work of nonprofit scholarly publishers and their many contributions to culture, the academy, and an informed society.

The 2020 theme, #RaiseUP, calls attention to the role that the university press community plays in elevating authors, subjects, and whole disciplines that bring new perspectives, ideas, and voices to readers around the globe—in partnership with booksellers, librarians, and others. We invite you to learn more about some of our recent books, journal issues, and articles that reflect that theme.
