Independent academic publisher Intellect has acquired fellow indie HammerOn Press. Intellect assumes publishing responsibilities for the acquired titles with immediate effect.
Intellect publishes over 100 journals and over 50 academic books a year, while HammerOn Press publishes non-fiction works that centre around feminist, anti-racist, trans, queer and anti-fascist perspectives.
Holly Rose, marketing director at Intellect, commented: "This is an exciting development for us. Both Intellect and HammerOn Press are fiercely passionate about what they do, representing small but hugely important communities and subject areas. Both companies have a strong ethos to represent the author's voice. We look forward to building on the foundations established by HammerOn Press and working with D M [HammerOn founder D M Withers] and their communities."
Withers added: "I am so delighted that HammerOn is now an imprint of Intellect books. It is incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to work with a publisher of such integrity, who shares our commitment to developing the author's voices and ideas. HammerOn has found its rightful home."
Withers will continue to work with Intellect Books as an editor of the upcoming Tools and Transformation series, which will be launched within the HammerOn imprint.
