Transcript is one of the leading academic publishers on the German-language book market. With more than ninety series, Transcript serves the academic fields of social, media, and cultural studies as well as history, philosophy, and cultural management. Its philosophy is to combine advanced theoretical reflection with careful empirical observation. Transcript aims to address not only academic readers but also the scientifically interested public. Its program features both highly specialized contributions and lighter, essayistic texts that offer appealing analyses of current cultural discussions. For students and lecturers, Transcript offers concise introductions, carefully composed readings of canonical texts, encyclopedias, and textbooks. Transcript publishes approximately 50 books a year in English as well as 250 books a year in German. Columbia University Press will initially be distributing only its English-language publications.
