The University of Washington Press and our partners in the Art History Publication Initiative (AHPI) are pleased to unveil our new website: arthistorypi.org.
AHPI is a Mellon Foundation-funded collaborative publishing project that includes four leading publishers of art history: University of Washington Press, Duke University Press, Penn State University Press, and the University of Pennsylvania Press.
Our mission is to help bring art history publishing into the digital age by tackling some of the obstacles that have made it difficult for scholars and publishers to take advantage of evolving digital technologies. All AHPI books are being published in both print and digital form, and the website will host accompanying multimedia materials such as video clips, interviews, podcasts, interactive maps, and more.
The website will also serve as a forum for discussions of rights and permissions issues that can be particularly vexing in the field of art history, with blog posts on recent developments and case studies about problems encountered and solutions found. For more information about the initiative and the first books in it, please visit the new site!
