Fordham University Press Launches New Website

17th October 2012

For Immediate Release

New York – Fordham University Press is delighted to announce the launch of its totally redesigned website. The new site provides users with a comprehensive and dynamic platform, functioning as an extended community and FUP store. Now visitors can not only easily find and buy books of interest but also be kept informed about resources, tips, news, awards and events. Along with a vastly expanded search functionality, FUP has added features like interactive catalogs and recommendations plus easy accessibility to other publishing initiatives and eBook Partners.

With intuitive navigation and far deeper social connectivity than its predecessor, the new website is a true resource for the greater FUP community including authors, professors, booksellers, librarians and contributors & academic collaborators.

 “The vastly improved website better represents Fordham University Press as a destination for publishing innovative, interdisciplinary scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. The new face of the press more accurately depicts who we are today. The fun design, the improved search functionality, and the integration with social media make it a fulfilling and beneficial experience for all of our constituents.”
                       —Fredric Nachbaur, Director

“One of our core goals was to create a site that serves our community; we wanted to be relevant and useful. We collaborated with Reitdesign and Guavabyte to design and develop our vision. Together they brought a smart, clean, and functional strategy that exceeded our expectations and have expanded our platform of offerings.”
                     —Kate O’Brien-Nicholson, Marketing Director

Press Mission + History:
Fordham University Press, which celebrated its centennial in 2007 and currently publishes sixty to seventy scholarly books annually, primarily in the humanities and

social sciences, has an outstanding reputation for producing award-winning studies in the fields of anthropology, classics, communications, the fine arts, history, literary studies, philosophy, political theory, religion, sociology, and theology, with a particular emphasis on creatively interdisciplinary work. Each year it publishes two books of poetry through the Poets Out Loud prize. Fordham University Press also has a long history of publishing books focusing on the New York region and in 2010 established the Empire State Editions imprint to better brand and market these popular regional books.

The Press, a member of the Association of American University Presses (AAUP) since 1938, was established in 1907 not only to represent and uphold the values and traditions of the University itself but also to further those values and traditions through the dissemination of scholarly research and ideas. The Press has achieved this mission by publishing 2,500 books and maintaining 1,000 active titles, including both print and electronic version.
