Wilfrid Laurier University Press (http://www.wlupress.wlu.ca/index.shtml) specializes, among other things, in the publication of series related to cultural studies, indigenous studies, the environment, memory and testimony studies, and the study of religion. Following the terms of the agreement with WLUP, the Association for Bahá’í Studies appoints an Editor and an Editorial Committee.
