About us

Karolinum Press is the publishing house of Charles University, the oldest university in Central Europe. As a division of the largest educational institution in the Czech Republic, the publications of Karolinum Press represent a broad spectrum of academic fields – from humanities to the natural sciences, medicine to the social sciences. We also publish a wide range of formats, producing scholarly monographs, journals, textbooks, and electronic publications and resources. Our particular strengths include art history, Central European history, cultural history, language textbooks, linguistics, literary criticism, philosophy, and visual culture, as well as translations into Czech of works by renowned international scholars. We are also home to a number of respected series, such as the Václav Havel Series, the Prague Series, and Modern Czech Classics. All the titles from these three series, and many other books of ours, are published in English and distributed globally by the University of Chicago Press.
