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. The publication also serves as a forum for authors to cast their expertise on a diverse range of issues facing the world today. In a landscape marked by rampant misinformation, the MIT Press 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 articles are available for syndication. If you’re interested in republishing one of them, please contact us so we can provide you with rich text and images when permissions allow.
