Sessions “Practices of Commentary Reading Group: Orality and Written Textuality”

On October 16, 2023, the first session of the Reading Group on Orality and Written Textuality will take place at the University of Toronto and it will be open to graduate-students, PhD, and Post-Doc researchers from all universities (in hybrid mode).

The Practices of Commentary reading group brings humanities researchers of different backgrounds together to discuss matters of common interest. The group meets once a month in a hybrid mode (i.e., both in person and online). Every session is led by a graduate student researcher who introduces in 5 to 10 minutes an article, a book chapter (or chapters), or a book on a selected theme. A discussion then follows, open to all participants. Every session is one hour long.

If you have any questions or would like to propose a reading, researchers from all universities are warmly invited to contact the group coordinator, Oliver Salem o.salem[a] who will be happy to help out and/or provide information.

This semester, the Practices of Commentary reading group will centre on the theme of Orality and Written Textuality, as well as the interactions between b oth. Our first meeting will be on Monday October 16, 2023, from 1 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. (Easter n time).

Oliver Salem will lead the group in a discussion o f one or more chapters from the recent public ation by Rebecca S. Wollenberg (2023) The Closed Book
