Sequence Press

Established in 2010, Sequence Press nurtures potent, yet under-recognized voices in contemporary philosophy and the arts, with an aim to stimulate the discussion by providing a space for artists and thinkers from diverse spheres to enter into dialogue beyond their prescribed circles. Sequence Press stages public lectures and events in art galleries and other alternative spaces to propel the work of these innovative thinkers. Sequence Press is partners with UK-based publisher Urbanomic. Rigorous, singular, and impeccably cutting-edge, Sequence Press titles invite readers to participate in an exploration of the future(s) of thought in a distinctly non-hierarchical environment.

The New Press

The New Press publishes books that promote and enrich public discussion and understanding of the issues vital to our democracy and to a more equitable world. Underlying The Press’s editorial program are three aims: to broaden the audience for serious intellectual work, especially by reaching out to audiences intellectually red-lined by commercial publishers; to bring out the work of traditionally underrepresented voices; and to address the problems of a society in transition, highlighting attempts at reform and innovation in a wide range of fields.
