Penn State University Press acquires Eisenbrauns as new imprint

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Pennsylvania State University Press has announced that Eisenbrauns is now an imprint of the press. This new partnership ensures the continuation of Eisenbrauns's internationally renowned publishing program and reaffirms PSU Press’s commitment to relevant, foundational scholarship.

Eisenbrauns president Jim Eisenbraun, who founded the publishing organization in 1975, will work as a consultant with PSU Press to guide and expand the imprint.

“This partnership will enable the Eisenbrauns publishing program to move forward in a cooperative and very complementary fashion, leveraging the strengths of both organizations to serve the academic community even better,” he said.

The extensive catalog of ancient Near Eastern history, linguistics, archaeology, and biblical studies that Eisenbrauns has amassed will complement PSU Press’s lists in the arts, humanities and social sciences.

“We will be able to further expand our mission in these vital areas of research,” remarked Penn State Press director Patrick H. Alexander, “and will ensure that the invaluable Eisenbrauns publications will continue to serve a global audience.”

Together, Penn State University Press and Eisenbrauns will continue to support and publish scholarship on the ancient Near East and biblical studies for the 21st century.
