Sequence Press and Urbanomic are now distributed by The MIT Press

We are delighted to announce that Urbanomic and Sequence Press have entered into a distribution agreement with the MIT Press.

Sequence Press, established in 2010 on New York’s Lower East Side, is dedicated to publishing primary texts in contemporary philosophy and the arts, and bringing them to a wide audience. Katherine Pickard, cofounder of Sequence, sees the distribution partnership with the MIT Press as part of their continued evolution and growth.

“Sequence was initially established as an independent press and bookshop housed within Miguel Abreu Gallery,” explained Pickard. “Over the last nine years, we’ve developed alongside our writers and now look to the MIT Press to help us continue to expand our readership internationally.”

As the MIT Press takes on logistics and marketing aspects of the business, Sequence and Urbanomic look forward to focusing their efforts to support authors, scan developing fields of thought, and build new audiences.

“With a partner like the MIT Press, we are confident that our books are being promoted by people who understand them, in the right places, and with our readers in mind,” said Robin Mackay, Director of Urbanomic. “With marketing and sales support from the MIT Press, our editorial, design, and production teams will be freed up to do what we do best: find and publish the books that map the tensions and faultlines that constitute the field of contemporary thought (and where possible, exacerbate them).”

“Sequence and Urbanomic are tremendous publishers with an established reputation for publishing works that are at the leading edge of contemporary thought,” said Marc Lowenthal, acquisitions editor at the MIT Press. “Their lists complement the strengths of the MIT Press, and we very much look forward to being part of their success story.”

Sequence and Urbanomic join the MIT Press’s growing and diverse list of distribution partners, which includes Afterall, Boston Review, Goldsmiths Press, No Place Press, Semiotext(e), Strange Attractor Press, Terra Nova Press, and Zone Books.
