Alumni Reading Groups

Marx Reading Group

A group of some of our PhD students recently initiated a Marx reading group. This group consists of about 10 students and alumni who are reading Karl Marx's Das Kapital. They meet in the GLS Reading Room on the first Wednesday of each month and engage in a close reading of the text. They also discuss contemporary issues in the context of his theories.

Proust Reading Group

In fall of 2012, GLS started a Proust reading group to discuss all six volumes of Remembrance of Things Past. Over 20 alumni joined together to participate in these bi-monthly seminars hosted by Stephen Duguid.  This group completed their studies of all volumes in September of 2015.

Due to popular demand, a new session is scheduled for Fall of 2016.  For more information contact Stephen.
