Harvard University Press (HUP) is a publishing house established on January 13, 1913, as a division of Harvard University, and focused on academic publishing. In 2005, it published 220 new titles. It is a member of the Association of American University Presses. Its current director is William P. Sisler and the editor-in-chief is Susan Wallace Boehmer.

The press maintains offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Harvard Square, and in London, England.

Notable HUP authors include Eudora Welty, Walter Benjamin, E. O. Wilson, John Rawls, Emily Dickinson, Stephen Jay Gould, Helen Vendler, and Carol Gilligan.

The Display Room in Harvard Square, dedicated to selling HUP publications, closed on June 17, 2009.[1] HUP has lent its name to the Harvard comma, because its house manual of style favors its use.

Related publishers, imprints, and series

HUP owns the Belknap Press imprint, which it inaugurated in May 1954 with the publication of the Harvard Guide to American History.[2] The John Harvard Library book series is published under the Belknap imprint.

Harvard University Press distributes the Loeb Classical Library and is the publisher of I Tatti Renaissance Library and the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library.

It is distinct from Harvard Business Press, which is part of Harvard Business Publishing, and the independent Harvard Common Press.

Political ideologies

A 2011 study of the books published by Harvard University Press during the 2000-2010 period and connected to political ideology found that out of 494 only eight "had an outlook that was conspicuously either classical liberal or conservative".[3][4]
