Faculty Reading Groups and Weekend Seminar
Reading groups focus on the study of scholarly, literary, philosophical, scientific, or historical texts selected by the participants, who are faculty members from multiple departments. Reading groups typically meet weekly or bi-weekly. Weekend Seminars usually begin on Friday evening, with a second session the following Saturday morning. For both formats, organizers may apply for funding to pay for books only, not for food. Requests should be sent to the Associate Deans' office for consideration by the Instructional Support Committee and should describe the proposed readings, meeting schedule, approximate number of participants, and anticipated budget for books.
