Did You Know?

That the University of Notre Dame is home to the largest Catholic university publisher in the world? Notre Dame Press has 1,000 books in print and publishes some 50 to 60 new titles annually. It publishes in areas that complement the University’s graduate programs, centers and institutes, with current projects focusing on theology, medieval studies, philosophy, peace studies, modern poetry, Latin American studies, history, and Irish and Irish American studies. Notre Dame faculty contribute their expertise as reviewers and series editors on numerous books published by the press. Established in 1949, Notre Dame Press is located on the University of Notre Dame campus. Here's a link to the Notre Dame Press website:
