About UVa Press

THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA PRESS was founded in 1963 to advance the intellectual interests not only of the University of Virginia, but of institutions of higher learning throughout the state. A member of the Association of University Presses, UVAP currently publishes seventy new titles annually. New titles are approved by the Board of Directors after a rigorous process of peer review. The UVAP editorial program focuses primarily on the humanities and social sciences with special concentrations in American history, African American studies, southern studies, literature, ecocriticism, architecture, and regional books. While it continuously pursues new titles, UVAP also maintains a backlist of over 1,000 titles in print.

The Press actively sustains a positive environment defined by constructive relationships, equity and inclusion, and mutual respect. We commit to holding challenging discussions of differences in a courteous, nonconfrontational manner and with respect to a diversity of viewpoints. The Press has zero tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism, or any other form of discrimination or harassment, or for unethical professional conduct of any kind.

Land-use Acknowledgment

The University of Virginia Press is situated on the traditional lands of the Monacan Nation, and the Commonwealth of Virginia was and is home to many other Indigenous people. We pay our respect to all of them, past and present. We also honor the enslaved African and African American people who built the University of Virginia, and we recognize their descendants. We commit to fostering voices from these communities through our publications and to deepening our collective understanding of their histories and contributions. 

To learn more or make a donation, visit the Monocan Nation and the Descendants of Enslaved Communities at UVA.
