Author Meets Readers

Launched in Fall 2020, our Author Meets Readers series connects humanities scholars or writers and their research with lifelong readers and learners. Individual sessions run for one hour, are facilitated by the Tanner Humanities Center Director or campus and community experts, and feature insights into the research and writing process, the impact of humanities scholarship on culture and society, and an audience discussion.

Previous Author Meets Readers sessions featured Annie Fukushima, Migrant Crossings: Witnessing Human Trafficking in the US; Martha Jones, Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All; Heather Houser, Infowhelm: Environmental Art and Literature in an Age of Data; and Paisley Rekdal, Appropriate: A Provocation.
