A Natural History of Reading

Sep 8, 2010

Leroy Searle, the first Joff Hanauer Professor of Western Civilization in the University Honors Program, completed his two-year term by organizing and publishing the proceedings of a conference dedicated to the theme of the Honors course he offered in the Spring quarter of 2010: The Natural History of Reading. The conference was held on June 3-5 and the twenty-six papers, given primarily by UW Honors students, as well as some delivered by UW professors and students and professors from other universities, were subsequently published by Gorham Publishing under the title The Natural History of Reading.
