CSEG Reading Groups

Reading groups are informal but engaging groups of students that meet regularly to discuss academic papers related to a particular discipline. Group members generally take turns picking the paper for the week, and everyone else reads it before coming to the meeting. The person who picked the paper for that week leads discussion on the paper.

Reading groups provide opportunities to discover new threads of publications you might not have otherwise encountered, and are a great way to motivate your own learning of a body of literature. (And often there's free food!)

Reading groups generally meet for one hour once a week during semesters, and sometimes during the summer as well. Reach out to the group contacts for more info!
