Welcome to our virtual exhibit for the Nineteenth-Century Studies Association!

We were sorry not to meet you this year at the Nineteenth-Century Studies Association Conference in Rochester, NY. However, we would still like to introduce you to some of our new titles, many of which are available in print via print on demand and as e-books! Please browse and follow the links to shop!

Have a project you'd like to discuss? Several of our editors acquire books related to nineteenth-century studies.

Out of concern for the health, safety, and well-being of our staff, and in response to a statewide order closing all non-life-sustaining businesses, PSU Press has suspended warehouse operations until further notice and will not be shipping physical books during this time. (For more information on PSU Press's response to COVID-19, click here.)
