Harvard University Press (HUP) is a publishing house established on January 13, 1913, as a division of Harvard University, and focused on academic publishing.[1] In 2005, it published 220 new titles. It is a member of the Association of American University Presses. After the retirement of William P. Sisler in 2017, George Andreou was appointed as Director[2]; the editor-in-chief is Susan Wallace Boehmer.

The press maintains offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Harvard Square, in New York City, and in London, England.

Notable authors published by HUP include Eudora Welty, Walter Benjamin, E. O. Wilson, John Rawls, Emily Dickinson, Stephen Jay Gould, Helen Vendler, Carol Gilligan, Amartya Sen, David Blight, Martha Nussbaum, and Thomas Piketty.

The Display Room in Harvard Square, dedicated to selling HUP publications, closed on June 17, 2009.[3]

Related publishers, imprints, and series

HUP owns the Belknap Press imprint, which it inaugurated in May 1954 with the publication of the Harvard Guide to American History.[4] The John Harvard Library book series is published under the Belknap imprint.

Harvard University Press distributes the Loeb Classical Library and is the publisher of the I Tatti Renaissance Library, the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library, and the Murty Classical Library of India.

It is distinct from Harvard Business Press, which is part of Harvard Business Publishing, and the independent Harvard Common Press.

Awards

Its 2011 publication Listed: Dispatches from America's Endangered Species Act by Joe Roman[5] received the 2012 Rachel Carson Environment Book Award from the Society of Environmental Journalists.[6]

Political bias

A 2011 study of the books published by Harvard University Press during the 2000–2010 period and connected to political ideology found that, out of 494, only eight "had an outlook that was conspicuously either classical liberal or conservative".[7][8][relevant? ]
