About

Located in Madison, Wisconsin, the University of Wisconsin Press was founded in 1936. The Press publishes books and journals. We select the books using a careful process of review by Press staff, outside experts, and a board of University of Wisconsin faculty. Each of our journal issues also undergoes a rigorous peer-review process.

Since its first book appeared in 1937, the Press has published and distributed more than 3000 titles. We have more than 1400 titles currently in print, including books of general interest (biography, fiction, natural history, poetry, photography, fishing, food, travel, etc.), scholarly books (American studies, anthropology, art, classics, environmental studies, ethnic studies, film, gay & lesbian studies, history, Jewish studies, literary criticism, Slavic studies, etc.), and regional books about Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest. We publish and distribute new books each year in these fields.

Among our book series are the Brittingham Prize in Poetry, the Felix Pollak Prize in Poetry, Wisconsin Studies in Autobiography, Wisconsin Studies in Classics, Living Out: Gay and Lesbian Autobiography, Studies in Dance History; George L. Mosse Series in Modern European Cultural and Intellectual History; The History of American Thought and Culture; and Publications of the Wisconsin Center for Pushkin Studies.
