Columbia University Press

Columbia University Press is a university press based in New York City, and affiliated with Columbia University. It is currently directed by James D. Jordan (2004-present) and publishes titles in the humanities and sciences, including the fields of literary and cultural studies, history, social work, sociology, religion, film, and international studies. Founded in 1893, Columbia University Press is notable among prestigious American academic presses for publishing reference works, such as The Columbia Encyclopedia (1935-present), The Columbia Granger's Index to Poetry (online as The Columbia World of Poetry Online) and The Columbia Gazetteer of the World (also online) and for publishing music. Other distinctions of its list include series of translations into English of classics in Asian languages, a number of them growing out of support by the Press of programs of instruction and research by Columbia's faculty in these fields. First among American university presses to publish in electronic formats, the Press founded an online-only site, Columbia International Affairs Online (CIAO) and Columbia Earthscape.

Famous quotes containing the words columbia university, university press, press, columbia and/or university:

    The young women, what can they not learn, what can they not achieve, with Columbia University annex thrown open to them? In this great outlook for women’s broader intellectual development I see the great sunburst of the future.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    Fowls in the frith,
    Fishes in the flood,
    And I must wax wod:
    Much sorrow I walk with
    For best of bone and blood.
    —Unknown. Fowls in the Frith. . .

    Oxford Book of Short Poems, The. P. J. Kavanagh and James Michie, eds. Oxford University Press.

    On leaf of palm, on sedge-wrought roll;
    On plastic clay and leathern scroll,
    Man wrote his thoughts; the ages passed,
    And lo! the Press was found at last!
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)

    The young women, what can they not learn, what can they not achieve, with Columbia University annex thrown open to them? In this great outlook for women’s broader intellectual development I see the great sunburst of the future.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    I am not willing to be drawn further into the toils. I cannot accede to the acceptance of gifts upon terms which take the educational policy of the university out of the hands of the Trustees and Faculty and permit it to be determined by those who give money.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
