Humanities Reading Group

The Humanities Reading Group, involving faculty from across the arts and humanities departments, meets several times a semester to discuss readings on the role of the humanities in public life.

If you would like to participate in the Humanities Reading Group, please contact Professor John Lurz (English). He will send PDFs of the readings to participants a few weeks before each meeting date.
