punctum books has landed


punctum books is an open-access and print-on-demand independent publisher dedicated to radically creative modes of intellectual inquiry and writing across a whimsical para-humanities assemblage. We specialize in neo-traditional and non-conventional scholarly work that productively twists and/or ignores academic norms, with an emphasis on books that fall length-wise between the article and the monograph—id est, novellas, in one sense or another. This is a space for the imp-orphans of your thought and pen, an ale-serving church for little vagabonds.

Nicola Masciandaro and I are more than excited to announce the official launch of punctum books. Go here to see the full press release, including vision statement, editorial board, and forthcoming titles:

press release: punctum books

Mark your calendars as well for Friday, May 13th, when the BABEL Working Group will be hosting a party from 9:00 p.m. to midnight at Bell's Brewery's Eccentric Cafe to celebrate the launch of punctum books during the 46th International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo, Michigan.
