Reading Groups

The UT Humanities Center hosts reading groups for faculty, staff, and students. Designed for readers from all parts of the university, our reading groups bring people with similar interests together to read and discuss a specific book related to humanities inquiry.

See the following for more information:

  • One Book, Many Conversations 
    The “One Book, Many Conversations” reading group invites the public to discuss the book selection in the national One Book, Many Conversations program affiliated with the National Humanities Alliance and other national humanities groups.
  • Humanities Matters
    The "Humanities Matters" series considers new perspectives on the value of the humanities to democracy and a life well-lived.
  • UT Reading and Discussion Groups
    UT Reading and Discussion Groups are short-term reading groups convened by UT faculty but open by invitation to faculty, graduate students, staff, and the public. Reading groups are informal discussions of texts of importance to humanities inquiry, and they may lead to the creation of a research seminar by convening faculty. The UT Humanities Center supports these groups with small book allowances.
