A joint imprint of Syracuse University Libraries and Syracuse University Press


The first publication to be launched under this new imprint is Public: A Journal of Imagining America, a peer-reviewed, multimedia e-journal focused on humanities, arts, and design in public life. Public encourages community-engaged learning, research, and practice across boundaries through vivid description and analysis, documentation, evaluation, inquiry, and critique. It is part of the national consortium Imagining America: Artists and Scholars in Public Life, committed to the relationship between culture and participatory democracy.

The second publication was Triple Triumph: Three Women in MedicineTriple Triumph is the story of three physicians. Each encountered resistance, discouragement, and obstruction from the traditional, male-dominated departments in which they worked. These powerful pioneers, undeterred, created programs that earned the highest levels of national distinction and acclaim. Their work and their names are now legendary—in geriatric medicine, in the treatment of breast cancer, and in diabetes research and treatment. Their stories differ, but the commonalities help us understand why constructive change is often so hard-won, and what it takes in commitment, courage, and tenacity to triumph in the end. Sharon Brangman, Patricia Numann, and Ruth Weinstock are inspiring heroes, from whom we can all learn essential lessons.
