Cognella Author Spotlight Series

The Cognella Author Spotlight Series

At Cognella, we’re proud to partner with authors and professionals across the disciplines who are often underrepresented in the academic publishing industry. We are committed to elevating diverse voices, distinct perspectives, and innovative approaches.

The Cognella Author Spotlight Series was created to highlight our incredible authors, provide them with a platform to speak about their unique experiences within academia, and showcase their textbooks with Cognella.

In light of current events and the vital conversations being had regarding racism, police brutality, and inequity in the United States, we are proud to use this program to celebrate our Black authors.
