Bucknell Press has been publishing in the arts, humanities and humanistically-oriented social sciences since 1968. We are a small press with a large presence. We produce cutting edge scholarship in monographs, collections of essays, memoirs, and poetry, all carefully chosen, expertly edited, and made with care and attention to artistic design. With the personal touch of a small organization, we work with a variety of commissioning editors, peer reviewers, editorial board members, graphic designers, and with our new partner in production, marketing and distribution, Rutgers University Press, to produce books with the global reach and critical profile of a large modern publishing house. Our books appear in hardcover, paperback, and electronic format.
We have become one of the leading publishers of Iberian Studies, Latin American Studies, and eighteenth-century studies (in a wide range of global and cultural connections), while also publishing extraordinary occasional texts in other areas, including memoirs, philosophy, French literature, art history, and cultural studies. While we consider hundreds of projects and publish approximately 30 titles per annum, we welcome book proposals from scholars and independent writers across the whole range of humanistic disciplines, not excluding biography, literary criticism, Africana studies, transnational considerations, law and literature, and historiography.
The university press as we know it arises out of the Renaissance commitment to humanistic knowledge and textual practice. In our own way, Bucknell University Press is proud to contribute to that important and ongoing scholarly and critical enterprise.
