About

Drawing on the MIT Press’s rich archive and family of distinguished authors, the MIT Press Reader is a nonprofit digital magazine that showcases thought-provoking excerpts, interviews, and other original works by Press-affiliated authors, past and present. In a landscape marked by rampant misinformation, the Reader promises to deliver insightful and compelling articles written for the general public but backed by academic rigor.

We aim to illuminate the bold ideas and voices that make up the Press’s expansive catalog, to revisit overlooked passages, and to dive into the stories that inspired the books.


Most of our stories are available for syndication. If you’re interested in republishing one of them, or if you have other questions regarding the Reader, please contact Anar Badalov.
