University of Regina Press
Built on the foundation of the former Canadian Plains Research Center Press, University of Regina Press (U of R Press) launched in June 2013 as Saskatchewan’s only scholarly publishing house. They also have a robust trade program. In just four years, U of R Press has published six national bestsellers in subjects ranging from Canadian history and Indigenous Studies to memoir and food studies. Two guiding principles inform the Press’s activities: first, its motto, “a voice for many peoples,” which has sparked new series in First Nations languages, Black Canadian studies, Métis studies, food studies, and the body; and second, its desire to revolutionize the humanities by publishing books that hit the zeitgeist and show a wide audience of readers the continued importance of academic work.
