About KUP

Kingston University Press is located in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, a flourishing academic and educational centre which embraces numerous disciplines. It is run from the Department of Journalism and Publishing, where it is embedded in the publishing Masters programme.

Drawing on the links established by Faculty courses such as Creative Writing, Publishing Studies, History, English Literature etc. and reflecting the work of our Centres of Excellence, particularly in Human Rights and Life Narratives, Kingston University Press will publish across a broad range of subject areas but will favour titles which lend themselves to a wide distribution in the book trade as well as those which have an academic market.
