Goldsmiths Press is a university press. Launched in 2016, we take advantage of digital technology in order to revive and regenerate the traditions and values of university press publishing. We are driven by a widely documented need for new forms of academic publishing in the digital age. For us, digital does not mean digital only and we publish and distribute print books as well as eBooks and other formats.
Our aim is to create a culture around academic knowledge practices that is more inventive and less constrained than it is now. We invest in high quality work and seek to reflect Goldsmiths’ strengths in theory, practice and performance.
