Between the World and Us: Notations for a Common Reading Experience of Ta-Nehisi Coates

Where: Many Nations Longhouse

Howard Rambsy, associate professor of literature at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, will address the campus about the UO's 2016-17 Common Reading book, Ta-Nehisi Coates' Between the World and Me. He’ll analyze the book’s extraordinary reception, including how UO’s Common Reading Program fits into a larger network of groups and institutions covering the book; and he’ll underscore potential challenges and opportunities for participating in a common reading experience based on a book like Between the World and Me. Professor Rambsy is author of The Black Arts Enterprise (Michigan 2011) and the popular Black Studies blog
