New strategic partnership for Liverpool University Press


Liverpool University Press (LUP) and Presses Universitaires de Provence (PUP), the publishing house for Aix-Marseille University, have entered into a new strategic partnership that will see select titles appearing under both imprints.

PUP will sell to continental Europe and LUP to English-language territories and globally in digital form.

Anthony Cond, Managing Director of LUP, said: “This is something rather more than co-publication or distribution – it is an ongoing strategic alliance that will broaden the audience for English language scholarship in a number of different fields, such as travel writing, memory studies and history coming out of France.  In the other direction, we have the opportunity to maximise the continental audience for English language scholarship on France.”

Charles Zaremba, Director of Presses Universitaires de Provence, added, : “The partnership between PUP and LUP, the presses of two prestigious European centres of learning, aims to become a crossroads for the circulation of knowledge and ideas between the French and English-speaking worlds, publishing leading research with an intercultural outlook, in paper and digital formats.”

Liverpool University Press is the foremost scholarly publisher in French Studies, while Presses Universitaires de Provence is the publishing arm of Aix-Marseille University, the largest university in the French-speaking world.
