The Binational Press/Editorial binacional publishes bilingual books (English/Spanish) as a joint venture between the university presses of San Diego State University and the Autonomous University of Baja California. These works focus on U.S.-Mexico border culture. The Binational Press was founded in 1987 as a cooperative effort between San Diego State University-Imperial Valley Campus, and Universidad Autónoma de Baja California. The press publishes bilingual works by new, emerging, and established Mexican and U.S. writers who explore border phenomena from various perspectives. Binational Press/Editorial binacional is unique, simultaneously regional and international and mutually sharing all editorial and production efforts. Binational Press/Editorial binacional is presently on hiatus.
