Established in 1913 “to advance knowledge,” Harvard University Press will this year commemorate its centennial with a range of endeavors designed both to celebrate its publishing heritage and to reach an expanding global audience, Susan Donnelly, Assistant Director Harvard University Press, announced today.
As part of the centennial celebrations, one of the main initiatives is an expanded sales and marketing presence in South Asia, made possible through a partnership with Harvard Business Publishing, India. The association will leverage Harvard Business Publishing’s established sales and distribution network in the region to increase availability of the entire range of titles offered by Harvard University Press.
The partnership will also focus on localized marketing activities and special South Asia pricing for some of the more important titles. “After establishing the HBR Press range of business and management books, and making them accessible all over South Asia in the last 3 years, we are excited to partner with HUP in its centennial year.
Through this partnership, we will bring to readers in South Asian markets, HUP’s range of books on various topics such as literature, social sciences, economics, philosophy, law and lots more”, said Vinay Hebbar, Managing Director, Harvard Business Publishing India.
Other projects inaugurated in 2013 that will extend HUP’s legacy into wider technological and geographical spheres are ambitious interactive digital works, such as the Emily Dickinson Archive and the digital Dictionary of American Regional English; an e-ditions program that will make available for sale worldwide virtually all the books HUP has published since its founding; and an anniversary website, www.hupcentennial.com, that will regularly post excerpts from 100 significant HUP books published since 1913.
In the 100 years since its founding, Harvard University Press has published over 10,000 new books across various fields and disciplines, including such iconic works as Bernard Bailyn’s The Ideological Origins of the American Revolution, John Rawls’s A Theory of Justice, and Carol Gilligan’s In a Different Voice.
“As we enter our second century and continue to engage an evolving publishing environment, we remain mindful of the constant that drives us: to be a worldwide publisher of works of the highest quality and enduring value, consistent with the standards of one of the world's great universities,” Donnelly said.
