This Year’s University Press Week Highlights Work on Education, Critical Race Theory, and More

Books, Collectives, Imprints, and More!

The 2021 University Press Week runs from November 8 to 12. This year’s theme “Keep Up!,” chosen by the Association of University Presses, marks the ten-year anniversary of UP Week, and celebrates the various ways in which university presses have grown in the past decade.

In keeping with the theme, member presses of the AUPresses submitted entries for the “Keep UP Reading List,” which is shown in full, below. The reading list includes books about education, critical race theory, climate change, and other urgent subjects, as well as presses’ non-book efforts such as imprints, collectives and presses’ online ebook platforms.
