The Townsend Center supports faculty and student research and scholarship in many areas and through a variety of outlets. The Berkeley Forum in the Humanities, published by Fordham University Press, features short works on topics of broad interest in the humanities and interpretive social sciences. Formerly known as The Townsend Papers in the Humanities (UC Press), the goal of the series is to present work that is richly contextual along historical and social lines while critical and challenging in its views.
The Occasional Papers series makes available some of the many lectures and conversations of eminent scholars, writers and artists who participated in Townsend Center programs 1994-2003.
We also help sponsor Representations, a quarterly journal of humanities and interpretive social sciences published by the University of California Press.
Our print newsletter includes articles by humanities faculty, students and affiliated scholars at UC Berkeley. In the News features articles on current topics in the Humanities, publications and projects by Berkeley faculty and fellowship participants, and general Townsend Center news.
