AAUP has recently welcomed two new members.
The University of Manitoba Press has been accepted as a full member of the association. Since 1967, Manitoba has been a leading publisher of books on Aboriginal history, Native studies, and Canadian history, among other scholarly fields including immigration and ethnic studies, Canadian politics, and Aboriginal languages. The Press, located in Winnipeg, is also strongly committed to publishing works on the culture and heritage of the Canadian prairies.
Saint Joseph’s University Press became the association’s newest introductory member this summer. The publishing arm of Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, a Jesuit institution founded in 1852, the SJU Press focuses on three key fields of scholarship: Early Modern Catholicism and the Visual Arts, Jesuit Studies, and Regional Studies. These editorial focuses reflect the university’s commitment to its Jesuit mission and its home.
