The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a major five-year grant to the University of Pittsburgh for a publishing initiative in the history of science to be pursued by the University of Pittsburgh Press in a close partnership with Pitt’s Department of History and Philosophy of Science and the Department of History’s World History Center. The grant will support publication of innovative work in the history of science. In addition to producing books, the Press and its partners will cooperate in a number of activities in support of this program, including guest lectures, conferences, fellowships, and a book prize. For more information, please read the press release. To submit a book proposal, please see our prospective authors page.
The University of Pittsburgh Press is also a partner in the Mellon Slavic Studies Initiative, which may be of interest to authors publishing first books in Russian, East European, and Central Asian Studies.
The University of Pittsburgh Press publishes annual volumes in Cuban Studies.
The Press does not normally publish in the
hard sciences or festschriften, symposia, unrevised doctoral
dissertations, memoirs, or fiction (except for the Drue Heinz Literature Prize).
While our editors will consider edited collections, they should have a coherent theme and organization. Collections of previously published materials are rarely considered.
