UCLA International Institute




Reading Groups

The Center is currently sponsoring two Reading Groups:

Reading Groups

Political Economy Reading Group
(attendence by invitation only)

New World Order (suspended)

On an experimental basis, CCGR will offer staff assistance to regular social science Reading Groups. These are small groups of UCLA social science faculty who meet together on a regular basis to read and discuss professional papers of interest. A requirement to establish a Reading Group is that it be interdisciplinary and cross-regional in its focus. Groups may range in size from three to thirty faculty, and may meet as often as weekly, or less. Meetings, however, should occur on a regular (not ad hoc or occasional) basis. Groups should have topical foci that are clearly social scientific in orientation, although participants may be drawn from departments and professional schools across campus.

CCGR offers assistance in coordinating group efforts by posting reading selections on a specified website, maintaining e-lists of participants, arranging meeting rooms, and offering a coffee service for meetings.

While group membership is informal, and may include visiting faculty, visiting scholars, graduate students, and other categories of scholars associated with UCLA and local institutions of higher learning, requests to establish a regular Reading Group should come from members of the UCLA Academic Senate. Please direct inquiries to CCGR Director, Miriam Golden (ccgr@international.ucla.edu)
