About the Press

The University of Delaware Press

The University of Delaware Press publishes approximately 15–20 books per year in Literary Studies, especially Renaissance and Early Modern literature; Eighteenth-Century Studies; French literature and culture; Art History and Material Culture Studies; and cultural studies of Delaware and the Eastern Shore. Our prestigious series, such as The Early Modern Exchange, Early Modern Feminisms, Performing Celebrity, and Studies in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Art and Culture, focus heavily on transnational and interdisciplinary scholarship.

All submissions considered for acquisition are subject to a rigorous peer review process in which at least two external readers are selected from among distinguished scholars in the appropriate fields. The Board of Editors currently consists of faculty members from the departments of Art History, English, History, and Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, as well as the Vice Provost for Libraries ex-officio. The Board meets six times per year and plays a crucial role in determining the editorial direction of the press. Julia Oestreich currently serves as director.

The University of Delaware Press carries out all acquisitions activities from its offices in the Morris Library on the University of Delaware’s main campus in Newark. It is partnered with the Rutgers University Press, which shares editorial responsibilities, and provides production and distribution services. The University of Delaware maintains full control of its imprint, leveraging this partnership to continue publishing the high-quality scholarship for which it is known.
