Stockton's Local History Press

The mission of the South Jersey Culture & History Center at Stockton University is to foster awareness within local communities of the rich cultural and historical heritage of southern New Jersey, to promote the study of this heritage, especially among area students, and to produce publishable materials that provide a lasting and deepened understanding of this heritage.

We republish noteworthy, hard-to-find titles and publish new works by contemporary authors and scholars. SoJourn, our annual journal, presents the studies of local historians. University students enrolled in the SJCHC editing internship assist in editing the books and articles, designing the layouts, and setting type; the directors of the South Jersey Culture & History Center oversee the publication of all titles. Together we proudly maintain Stockton’s local history press.

Sales Catalog Fall 2023
