Amherst College Press produces pathbreaking, peer-reviewed scholarship and makes it available to readers everywhere as digital, open access work. The press publishes titles in art history and visual studies, Latin American studies, literary studies, music, and Russian, East European, and Eurasian studies with a deep interest in interdisciplinary scholarship. We publish our books on Fulcrum, a platform created by University of Michigan Publishing, allowing narrative to be richly integrated with multimedia and optimized for long-term preservation and accessibility.
