INCITE Book Series

Oral History Series at Columbia University Press

INCITE and the Columbia Center for Oral History Research (CCOHR) proudly oversee the Oral History Series at Columbia University Press. We publish diverse genres of books—from analytic works that rely on oral history as key evidence to edited narratives from archival projects—that creatively communicate the stories that our narrators tell.

The series is co-edited by Mary Marshall Clark (Director of CCOHR), Kimberly Springer (Curator of the Oral History Archives at Columbia), Amy Starecheski (Director of the Oral History Master of Arts) and Peter Bearman (INCITE Director). The series publishes as many as three books per year.

Robert Rauschenberg: An Oral History (2019)


INCITE Press is our center’s publishing imprint that promotes work by graduate students and other budding scholars, while also serving as an outlet for innovative and unconventional expressions of scholarship that may not fit the parameters of traditional academic publishers. By publishing manuscripts and compositions that blend disciplines, genres, and styles in creative and revealing ways, the press supports INCITE’s mission to holistically engage, investigate, and address social issues.
