Reading Group Proposal Form: Spring 2021

PPE Reading Group Proposal Form: Spring 2021

If you are interested in running a PPE Reading Group next term, please use this form to make a proposal. We intend to run four reading groups: two “PPE Classics” (eg: Democracy in America, The Wealth of NationsDiscourse on Inequality) and two contemporary books on PPE topics, at least one of which should incorporate perspectives from the social sciences.

Please indicate in the “Comments” field the level of familiarity you have with your proposed text, why it is particularly suitable for a PPE Reading Group, and any other relevant information. The priority deadline for reading group proposals is January 6, 2021.

The reading groups should meet virtually for eight weeks over the course of the semester, ending early enough that they won’t conflict with the press of the end of the semester.  The PPE Program provides copies of the books to all participants, a modest meal stipend in lieu of in-person dinners at Gourmet Kingdom (while we stay remote), and a modest honorarium for those who lead the group.

Information about the Reading Groups we have held in the past is available HERE.

Thank you for your interest!
