Hudson River Valley Review takes an eclectic and interdisciplinary approach to the region and regionalism. It publishes essays, poems, photographs, paintings, documents, and book and art reviews, and it is ready to consider other forms of intellectual achievement. The Review was founded at Bard College in 1984 as The Hudson Valley Regional Review. The name changed when we assumed publication in 2003, but everything else has remained the same. Our online archives and back issues represent the full collections of the HVRR as well as the HRVR.

The Review is published twice a year by The Hudson River Valley Institute, James M Johnson, Executive Director.

A Place for Regionalism , by Richard Wiles and David Pierce.
