Welcome to our virtual exhibit!
From the desk of Steve Wrinn, Director:
Greetings from Notre Dame,
I hope this message finds you, your family, and your loved ones healthy, safe, and comfortable during this time of unprecedented challenges and persistent uncertainty. Although I regularly attend several academic conferences each year, I’ve always particularly looked forward to the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association. A time to share vital, new research that simultaneously has the feel of an intimate family reunion, the APSA meeting has always held a special place in my heart.
While the nature of scholarly communication may be changing in the face of this global pandemic, our commitment to publishing influential books remains as strong as ever, so it is with great enthusiasm that I present our new titles in political science and political theory. I hope many of you will appreciate the depth and breadth of our offerings, and find several titles that interest you. I have been acquiring books in political theory and political science since 1995, and since becoming director of the University of Notre Dame Press in 2015, I have set out to establish UNDP as one of the nation’s premier publishers of political science topics. We have attracted scholars and intellectuals from around the world to bring their research to bear on the most important and enduring questions that we face in this age, and in the years to come.
In my 25 years of experience, I’ve witnessed the numerous profound changes that have buffeted scholarly publishing. From the ways editors evaluate potential projects to the supply chains that serve our readers, I joke that publishing has evolved more in the past five years than in the previous five centuries. But some things never change. Certain principles are immutable. UNDP remains committed to identifying, peer reviewing, and disseminating the highest quality scholarship to the broadest possible audience. We view it as our mission to preserve for posterity influential books that advance our understanding of the world. Finally, we believe that our publications should expand the influence and impact of our host institution.
I invite you contact us with your book ideas. Feel free to reach out to our editor Rachel Kindler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
