Founded in 1989 as a unique collaboration between the University of Rochester and independent academic publisher Boydell & Brewer, Ltd., the University of Rochester Press publishes books of high intellectual merit that reflect selected strengths of the university and contribute to scholarly dialogue in specific subject areas. The press sees as its mission the dissemination of scholarship to the academic community and to thoughtful general readers, particularly in the fields of musicology and music theory, African studies, European history, and the history of medicine.
All manuscripts chosen for consideration by the press are rigorously peer-reviewed and brought before its editorial board for approval. We acquire and select projects—specialized monographs and contributed volumes—that fortify our established series, and that add meaningfully to the store of knowledge in these and related disciplines.
