ARC Humanities Press is a publisher that scholars in premodern studies are not only eager to publish with but keen to watch. Its list includes a range of lively, high quality, and cutting edge scholarly work in the field of medieval and early modern literary studies. Every volume is beautifully produced and expertly edited. ARC is pushing the discipline into new areas of inquiry and reflecting the dynamism of our field’s concerns with issues that are currently of great interest for literary, historical and cultural studies, including aesthetics and formalism, gender, global literatures, and race.

The actual book looks terrific. I really enjoyed the entire process with Arc, and I appreciate the ongoing care for the book that you have shown.

Our copies of the book have arrived. It has been a great moment to see the final result of our cooperation. The book looks marvellous. As editors we would like to thank you warmly for this opportunity and cooperation; hoping it will be possible to do so again in the future.

The books I’ve seen from ARC are really fresh and lively which is all down to hard work in a cut throat business.

[T]he Encyclopedia of the Global Middle Ages [is] a new reference work written by an international group of scholars and commissioned by Arc Humanities Press. […] The scope of Encyclopedia of the Global Middle Ages is global, with articles on Kosovo, Korea, Ethiopia, Oceania, Delhi, and the Maya. This inclusivity contrasts with older seminal works[…]. [Its] content is diverse and eye-opening.

Michael Rodriguez, Collections Strategist, University of Connecticut, Storrs [published review]

The volume looks beautiful and as I believe I’ve mentioned to you in the past, [the honoree] would have been absolutely delighted to have it come out as an open access text since he was an early adopter of and an ardent proponent of open access.

It has been a real pleasure working with you on this project; I’ve very much appreciated your professionalism and that of your colleagues with whom I’ve also worked. From my perspective, this has been a great experience all around. Ruth Kennedy did a splendid job on the design of the volume and she proved to be a very careful and sharp-eyed production manager, which I greatly appreciated.

Review of a volume of collected essays by non-native speaking scholars:

The essays are edited and formatted to a high standard and written in accessible and clear English. […] [T]he volume fills important gaps in historical research, serves a genuine need for high-quality and accessible Anglophone scholarship on lesser-studied areas of Europe, and sets a fine example for any future endeavors in the field to follow.
