NYU Press was founded in 1916 by the then chancellor of NYU, Elmer Ellsworth Brown, in order, he said, to "publish contributions to higher learning by eminent scholars."[1]
Once best known for publishing The Collected Writings of Walt Whitman—regarded as the definitive series of his work—NYU Press has now published numerous award-winning scholarly works, such as Convergence Culture (2007) by Henry Jenkins, The Rabbi's Wife (2006) by Shuly Schwartz, and The Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and During the Holocaust (2002).[1] Other well-known names published by the press include Cary Nelson, Jonathon Hafetz, and Mark Denbeaux. It was spotlighted by the Huffington Post in 2010, which described NYU Press as "consistently publish[ing] scholarly yet accessible books", and "ahead of the cultural curve—pushing literary trends—rather than behind it".[2]
