Broadview: An Introduction
The word "broadview" expresses a good deal of the philosophy behind our company. Our focus is very much on English Studies and Philosophy, but within those two core subject areas we are open to a broad range of academic approaches and political viewpoints. We welcome feminist perspectives, and we have a particular interest in addressing environmental issues. Our publishing program is internationally-oriented, and we publish for a broad range of geographical markets—but as a Canadian company we also publish a broad range of titles with a Canadian emphasis. And our individual titles often appeal to a broad readership; we publish many titles that are as much of interest to the general reader as they are to academics and students.
