Reading Groups


Reading Groups

Our reading groups combine faculty in disciplines ranging from Art History to Music Technology, from Ecclesiastical Theory to Biomedical Ethics.  The project begins the challenge of grappling with conceptions of conversion beyond our familiar academic boundaries, and broaching new understandings through collective textual analysis. We are continually astonished and inspired by the insights, as well as the light shed on each reading by the variety and breadth of our team members.

See below for a list of each research group. The listing on the left provide a calendar of upcoming reading group meetings.
