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:

  • Humanities Matters
    The "Humanities Matters" series considers new perspectives on the value of the humanities to democracy and a life well-lived.
  • Research Inquiry Groups
    Research Inquiry Groups are reading groups convened to investigate an emerging area of study important to humanities inquiry and potentially leading faculty across fields to collaborative research.

  • 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.
