Reading Group

Host a Faculty Reading Group

A faculty reading group can be convened on any topic that interests two or more Wellesley faculty members, at least one of whom represents a humanities department. Normally, a reading group meets approximately three times at the Newhouse Center during a semester. A stipend of up to $1,000 will be available for use by the leader or leaders of the group to offset the cost of books, refreshments, or a visit by an external speaker/discussant. At the end of each year, the group must submit a brief report (one to two paragraphs) about its progress. Faculty are encouraged to apply early in the academic year as we have limited funds for this purpose. Please write to the director.
