We're remembering the late #JoshOzersky, who enlivened this small press.
Since news of food writer Josh Ozersky's untimely death hit Twitter, those who knew him have called him the 'maharajah of meat', an 'epic food storyteller', a 'titan', and a 'mensch'. Josh wrote a biography of Colonel Sanders...

Introduction
About Us

The University of Texas Press is a book and journal publisher—a focal point where the life experiences, insights, and specialized knowledge of writers converge to be disseminated in both print and digital formats. Established in 1950, UT Press has published more than 3,000 books over six decades. Under the direction of David Hamrick, the Press produces approximately one hundred new books and eleven journals each year. A list of the Press' Advisory Council Members can be found here.

By launching a scholarly press, the University of Texas at Austin made several important statements: books matter; books educate; and publishing good books is a public responsibility and a valuable component of higher education.

In the years since, the Press has become a publisher of international scope, issuing works in a wide range of fields. Our books present the results of original research conducted all across the United States and Latin America and in centers of learning throughout the world. Our major areas of concentration are American StudiesArchitecture, Classics and the Ancient WorldFilm, Media, and Popular Culture, Food, History, Jewish StudiesLatin American and Latina/o Studies, Middle Eastern Studies, MusicPhotography, and Texas and Western Studies.

In addition, UT Press publishes books of general interest for a wider audience on a variety of subjects, including history, current affairs, the visual arts, music, and food, among others. As part of its mission to serve the people of Texas, the Press also produces books on the history, culture, arts, and natural history of the state.

Our publishing programs in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences extend far beyond the borders of Texas and even of the United States. We count among our authors some of the most respected scholars and writers in the hemisphere. Yet a rich source of literary material lies at our very feet on the university's Austin campus.

The university's reputation is built on its faculty, its nationally recognized centers for advanced study, and its renowned archives and collections in literature, history, art, and the sciences—sources on which the Press has drawn for decades. UT Press regularly collaborates with the university's Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, Center for Mexican American Studies, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, School of Information, Institute of Classical Archaeology, Schusterman Center for Jewish Studies, and the Teresa Lozano Long Institute for Latin American Studies, as well as the Blanton Museum of Art and the Harry Ransom Center. Outside of the university, we publish books on Southwestern and Mexican literature and photography with the Wittliff Gallery at Texas State University.
