About Us

Intellect is an independent academic publisher in the arts and humanities, publishing scholarly books and journals that exemplify our mission as publishers of original thinking. We aim to provide a vital space for widening critical debate in new and emerging subjects, and in this way we differ from other publishers by campaigning for the author rather than producing a book or journal to fill a gap in the market.

We are best known for our work in the visual arts, film studies, cultural studies, communication studies, media studies, fashion and performing arts. These categories host Intellect’s ever-expanding topics of enquiry, which include photography, drawing, curation, community music, gaming and scenography. Intellect titles are often multidisciplinary, presenting scholarly work at the cross section of arts, media and creative practice.

Intellect seeks to offer an unbiased platform for quality critical debate. We are committed to representing the author’s voice authentically, without imposition of our personal ideas or opinions. We place great emphasis on serving our authors and editors, customers, and communities. As a mission-based publisher, we are committed to reinvesting in our publishing activities.

We have a robust international distribution arrangement, including partners such as the University of Chicago Press, Turpin Distribution and Footprint.
