CEEOL Press will publish books about the region for a general and professional scholarly audience, while also offering partnerships for academic publishers and authors in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe who are looking for international distribution for their titles, to support sales and bring about wider global recognition.
Krisztina Kós, former Central European University Press director and editor, has been appointed director of CEEOL Press. Kós said: “I am incredibly excited about the newly established CEEOL Press. Our aim is to bring the historical, political, cultural, and ideological issues of our region close to any interested, specialized or non-specialized reader. We are particularly interested in hybrid, unconventional, even radical, publications that want to shape and define new ways of thinking and communicating about old topics. We are also strongly committed to fostering and supporting the legitimacy of native language publications. CEEOL Press offers the possibility of co-publication for prestigious academic presses in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.”Kós will divide her working time between Budapest and Frankfurt am Main.
