Academic Studies Press would like to wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year! Though we’re already a few days into 2023, what better time to reflect on what a year 2022 was; we’ve compiled a list of (only a small fraction of!) our favorite reviews, noteworthy media mentions, and more. Here’s to 2023!
Words for War and The White Chalk of Days – Updated Websites
Since the February 24, 2022 invasion of Ukraine, ASP—along with the rest of the world—has been deeply troubled by the situation in Ukraine and continues to express concern for family, friends, authors, and colleagues in the region. Since our founding, our mission has been to increase knowledge within the humanities and social sciences through dialogue, research, and scholarly exchange to help promote understanding and appreciation between cultures. Two volumes that particularly embody that mission are Words for War— edited by Oksana Maksymchuk & Max Rosochinsky to bring together for the first time in any language a collection of Ukrainian poetry about the current war in the Donbas region of Ukraine—and The White Chalk of Days—compiled and edited by Mark Andryczyk to showcase a finely curated selection of Ukrainian poetry, fiction, and essays—both of which were published in 2017 with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the project “Contemporary Ukrainian Literature in English Translation.” As such, in 2022, we updated our dedicated websites for two volumes. At these new sites, you can explore both volumes, which do the vital work of capturing the voices of Ukrainian poets and writers and bringing them into English, in their entirety for free. You may also want to explore our burgeoning Ukrainian Studies series.
We have some exciting titles coming up in 2023, so as always, be sure to check out our social media and subscribe to our newsletters!
