Committed to publishing relevant work of academics and independent researchers in the field of humanities and social sciences, as well as to publishing books for the classroom, UP is dedicated to bringing students, instructors and researchers the best editorial and academic output. With books addressing well-identified readers, the press’s main aim is to publish books that make sense of the world. In all disciplines, thematic volumes and monographs aim at introducing new concepts and trends that challenge pre-conceived and outdated narratives. In the literary field, editions of classics, either student editions, scholarly or critical editions, and anthologies cater to today’s students by presenting material in an engaging, politically correct and culturally sensitive way.
