Following the two-years-running modest-but-acceptable success of the School of Library and Information Studies summer reading group "Reading Information Studies," I'd like to invite folks from the world of Journalism & Mass Communication to engage in a similar summer reading group, "Reading Communication Studies." The idea is that together we pick three books that we might not normally read in seminar or research, but should -- one must be fiction -- and work through them at a pace of one book per month over the summer. This blog works as a site to discuss what we're reading as we go along. We'll also use the blog to coordinate one in-person meeting for each book, each one to be held on a (hopefully) nice day at the Memorial Union Terrace over whatever snacks and drinks folks wish to purchase. Interested? Great. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the weblog here, and watch this space for our announcements of books and meeting times this summer.
