Reading List of the...

Graduate Student Reading Group
Department of African Languages and Literature
University of Wisconsin-Madison

As founder and flag-waver for the grad student reading group, I offer the following listing of books once "discussed." There is usually some sort of rhyme or reason to the grouping of works though those supposed connections are not always borne out by the reading.

As primary flag-waver, I guess I ought to take responsibility for the group's demise as well. The Reading Group, always a tenuous one at best, sporting one to four members at any particular meeting, has collapsed, much to my chagrin.
