Meet the Press

Duquesne University Press, founded in 1927, has a long and rich tradition of scholarly publishing in a variety of subject areas. Over the years, Duquesne’s editorial program has included award-winning titles in literary studies, philosophy, psychology, and religious studies; its early entry into fields such as existentialism and phenomenology long ago cemented its reputation for books that shape and influence serious thought.

In the early 1970s, The American Scholar commented on “the series of high level books on philosophy which Duquesne University Press has issued,” and America magazine wrote: “Duquesne has concentrated on making a contribution in restricted areas. . . . The overall achievement of this relatively small operation has been extraordinary. . . .”

More recently, the Sixteenth Century Journal declared, “For several decades now, Duquesne University Press has been one of our best sources of solid, substantial work in English Renaissance studies. . . .” And the editors of the Ben Jonson Journal have singled out our publications for their overarching high quality, commenting on titles that are “handsome in the ways we have come to expect of books produced by Duquesne University Press,” but noting their “real value [which]lies in impressive content and intelligent design.”

As we continue through our ninth decade in academic publishing, Duquesne University Press titles continue this tradition, representing a continuing commitment to scholarship, innovation, and the sharing of valuable ideas.
