Helping scholars navigate the publication process—from first article to first book and beyond.
Since 2022, the Whitney Publishing Project has supported humanities publishing in a variety of ways: workshops, editors-in-residence, and grants for faculty editing major journals. The project is headed by our deputy director, Diane Berrett Brown, who brings decades of experience as an editor for scholarly publications, including Diacritics.
Celebrating the humanities, one book at a time.
The Whitney Publishing Project supports faculty at all stages of the publication process, including when it comes time to celebrate. In 2023, we launched the Humanities Faculty Bookshelf, a virtual exhibit of faculty scholarship displayed on the monitors in the Humanities Quadrangle. This digital bookshelf shows a colorful rotation of slides featuring the covers of recently published and forthcoming books in the humanities by Yale authors. Communications officer Megan O’Donnell runs the bookshelf with help from our team of Graduate Professional Experience Fellows.

We are currently featuring books published in 2023 and 2024. Faculty members who wish to see their book displayed should email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Humanities Faculty Bookshelf. Please include a high-resolution image of the book cover.
