The Department of English houses and partners with many extracurricular groups that engage with the biggest issues in their fields. Join one!
Student reading groups offer students extracurricular opportunities to read and discuss topics of interest.
Television Reading Group:
Our group recognizes that television has become the dominant artistic medium in this contemporary moment, and as such, we seek to interrogate its formal, thematic and industrial contributions, along with discourse from popular culture content producers such as Vulture, AV Club, Slate and others which discuss television. We meet a few times a semester and peruse both academic and popular cultural readings of television shows, and the industry surrounding them, which we supplement with episodes whenever possible.
