About Us

Aboriginal Studies Press (ASP) is the Australian Institute of Aboriginal of Torres Strait Islander Studies' (AIATSIS) publishing arm and Australia's leading publisher of Australian Indigenous studies. We have an eye for identifying compelling and award-winning narratives that capture the unique heritage and diverse lives of Australia's first peoples. We pride ourselves on our ethical publishing which provides readers with a rich understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' histories and cultures.

Our authors are Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics and writers who work independently and, at times, collaboratively to ensure that the best of Australia's stories are shared with current and future generations. Our small publishing team publishes about six titles each year with about 120 titles available.
