Virtual Reading Group

Please join us as we talk to authors of recently published ethnographies addressing communication, media and performance broadly defined.

We meet virtually from 1-2 pm East Coast Time on the last Friday of every month that Indiana University is in session (read: pretty much every month that a U.S. university on the semester system is in session).  Please contact us at:  if you would like to participate.
