A Quadrant Book

The University of Minnesota Press in partnership with the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota was awarded a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to launch Quadrant, a program that promotes interdisciplinary research and publication. Quadrant marks the beginning of a new model for publisher–university collaboration: designed to bring scholars in the humanities and social sciences into dialogue with those in the sciences and professional schools, this joint initiative enhances academic relationships across campus and effectively addresses current concerns about the distance of university presses from the goals and priorities of their parent institutions. Quadrant’s four groups focus on emerging areas of groundbreaking interdisciplinary scholarship: Design, Architecture, and Culture; Environment, Culture, and Sustainability; Global Cultures; and Health and Society.
