On July 13, Harvard University Press announced that George Andreou will take the position of director as his predecessor, William Sisler, retires after 27 years of successfully filling the role.
Landing the director position at Harvard University Press is no small task, as the press has published leading works in the areas of humanities, science, and the social sciences since 1913. The press is also expanding to include digital formats, which presents an ever-increasing opportunity for Andreou as the new director.
A Harvard graduate with a degree in English and American literature and language, Andreou is poised to perform well in the role. He has already made clear his intention to take advantage of what he calls “these transformational times,” and his plans for the press include increasing its output of quality works that will interest general readers as well as academics.
