Columbia University Press (CUP)

Columbia University Press (CUP) was founded in 1893 and is the fourth-oldest university press in the United States. Throughout its history, one of the strengths of the Press has been the diversity of the Press’s list. The Press has also distinguished itself with its strong list in social work, publishing texts that have been widely adopted in courses and are used by professionals in the field. Through its European Perspectives series and the publication of the Wellek Library Lectures, the Press has published a range of innovative and leading scholars. Other notable lecture series published by Columbia University Press include The Leonard Hasting Schoff Memorial Lectures and The Bampton Lectures in America.
