MARCH 2023

Dear Friends,

It is my privilege to present the Fordham University Press Annual Report to you, highlighting our publishing program's diversity, richness, and strength. First, I'd like to welcome our new President, Tania Tetlow, to Fordham University. I hope your first few months on campus have been enjoyable and you have had fun meeting the students, faculty, and staff. We look forward to working with you and continuing to contribute to the mission of this wonderful community.

We at Fordham University Press (FUP) are happy to be back on campus regularly and interacting with colleagues, students, and outside constituents. It's what makes our business fun, collaborative, and creative. It also contributes to helping our great city thrive. Our student interns (page 27) have been coming in regularly and are glad to interact and learn from industry experts in a combined face-to-face and virtual environment. Thanks to them for helping make our books a success.

Not only are we back in the office, but we are also slowly starting to travel and have attended important academic and industry meetings such as the American Academy of Religion, American Historical Association, American Studies Association, American Anthropological Association, and Modern Language Association (pages 16 & 17). These conferences not only allow us to meet with our authors and readers, they are a critical part of acquiring manuscripts and keeping up on the latest trends in scholarly content and developments. To be competitive and a leader in academic publishing requires a presence at these scholarly events. We hope to be attending our full roster of events soon.

The annual report gives a snapshot of our successes this year, including awards, reviews, book launches, social media, website promotions, and subsidiary rights, all of which can only happen due to the excellent work the entire team at FUP puts into creating a strong list of titles each year.The team makes great efforts to balance the list with general interest, academic trade, and scholarly books to reach our diversity of readers. I want to highlight just a few examples from the past year.

In the general interest category, we published Boy with the Bullhorn: A Memoir and History of ACT UP New York by Ron Goldberg (page 2), which offers a first-hand account of life on the front lines of the AIDS crisis. Ron was tireless in his promotional efforts, including a standing-room-only book launch at the Gay and Lesbian Center in NYC.

Moving onto the academic trade, Between Heaven and Russia: Religious Conversion and Political Apostasy in Appalachia by

Sarah Riccardi-Swartz examines conversion to Russian Orthodoxy and political alignment with Russian conservative politics by contemporary rural American citizens. It saw critical reviews and solid sales soon after release.

And for scholarly, we published Being of Two Minds: Modernist Literary Criticism and Early Modern Texts by Jonathan Goldberg, which examines the place that early modern literature held in Modernist literary criticism. Unfortunately, Jonathan passed away right after the book was published, but we are honored to have published his final work, and he got to see it in print.

I'd also like to mention that we acquired the Disruptive Cartographers: Doing Theology Latinamente series from Orbis and published Queer God de Amor by Miguel Diaz (page 16), which explores the mystery of God and the relationship between divine and human persons. This book and series represent our mission to explore diverse themes, unsettle traditional thinking, and broaden our readership.

Expanding our audience means offering books in formats they want, including eBooks and open access. We continue to explore ways to make our content more widely available but in fiscally responsible ways. Our newest initiative involves working with DUAR to crowdfund digitizing our deep backlist.

We look forward to seeing how this campaign helps with our goal. We are also launching a new shopping cart that allows for print and digital books to be sold directly from our website to engage more closely with our community of readers.

In 2022 we took great strides to partner with intercampus departments to do more outreach with our community. One such event was the Back-to-School Community Day (page 26), hosted by the Center for Community Engaged Learning. We offered a selection of regional books to be given away in the backpacks. We plan to engage in similar initiatives and have a presence at the Bronx Book Festival in 2023.

Please look at the following pages and enjoy the books and announcements we've had so much fun producing on your behalf. Thanks to my team, the faculty board, and the administration for their continued support of our mission.

Warmest regards, Fred

Eng’s contentment in fully embracing his identity as both American and Chinese is full of humor and heart. His fluency across cultures—not just in New York and China but also in rock music, theatrical performance, playwriting, and journalism—lends itself to a multifaceted, engaging memoir.

RIGHTS CORNER

FILM & TELEVISION RIGHTS

The rapid expansion of streaming media has diversified demand for content licensing. Historically, conventional wisdom has held that their intellectual and challenging nature makes FUP’s publications unsuitable for screen adaptation. However, as the death of broadcast has fractured audiences, waves of social upheaval have highlighted a broad audience that demands thoughtful work that lifts up marginalized voices and addresses structural problems in our society: The kind of work that Fordham is proud to publish.

In early 2023, FUP sold its first option of screen adaptation rights to Marilyn Greenwald and Yun Li’s Eunice Hunton Carter: A Lifelong Fight for Social Justice, an award-winning biography of the civil rights pioneer (and Fordham alumna). Harlem Fusion Studios—an independent, Black woman–owned film, television, and new media production company founded by Shakesha Williams in 2012—is currently developing the story of Carter’s life into Carter and the Queen, an exploration of power, gender, and the social construction of crime in Jazz-Age Harlem, for streaming platforms.

TRANSLATION & AUDIO RIGHTS

Fordham University Press is an internationally recognized publisher in philosophy, theology, literary criticism, anthropology, and history. While continuing our history of rich cultural exchange with the European academy, we continue to expand into new markets, particularly China, Korea, Turkey, and Eastern Europe. As demand for audiobook editions rises, we continue to experiment with models for audio publication and licensing.

Fordham University Press, established in 1907, is the seventh oldest university press in the country and the nation’s oldest Catholic university press. Publishing seventy books annually, primarily in the humanities and social sciences, it has an outstanding reputation for producing award-winning studies in the fields of anthropology, classics, communications, cultural studies, gender studies, history, literary studies, philosophy, political theory, race and ethnicity, religion, sociology, theology, and urban studies with a particular emphasis on creatively interdisciplinary work. Each year it publishes two books of poetry through the Poets Out Loud prize. Fordham University Press not only represents and uphold the values and traditions of the University itself but also furthers those values and traditions through the dissemination of scholarly research and ideas. The Press publishes boundary-breaking print and digital books that bring recognition to itself, the University, and authors while balancing the need to publish in new formats and work collaboratively on and off campus. Its regional imprints, Empire State Editions and New York ReLit, and location in New York City’s Lincoln Center neighborhood reinforce the university’s motto, New York is My Campus, Fordham is My School.
