Practices of Commentary Reading Group: Orality and Written Textuality

When and Where

Friday, December 15, 2023 1:00 pm to 2:15 pm


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 (, who will be happy to help out and/or provide information.

This semester, the reading group will centre on the theme of Orality and Written Textuality, as well as the interactions between both.
