Summer LMU Faculty Book Conversations

LMU Faculty!

Are you on campus this summer? If so, please join your fellow faculty members for a book discussion about Southland by Nina Revoyr, co-sponsored by the LMU Common Book and the Center for Teaching Excellence.

This faculty-only book circle will allow you to read Southland and collaboratively consider themes that you might be able to incorporate into your teaching over the next academic year, and developing discussion topics that could be shared with other faculty and staff to connect with students. We also invite you to bring ideas or examples of related books, articles, documentaries, or other media related to the themes in Southland for discussion.

Discussion dates (please feel free to come to one, or both!):

  • Wednesday June 24
  • Wednesday July 8

Both discussions will take place in the CTE (UHall 3000) from 12-1pm. These discussions will be informal and led by the participants who attend each session – La’Tonya will be at each session to capture ideas that we can incorporate into the Readers’ Guide and Further Reading/Viewing resources.

Lunch will be provided by the Common Book committee and the Center for Teaching Excellence.

All registrants will receive a copy of Southland – please RSVP by emailing commonbook@lmu.edu ASAP to reserve your spot and get your book delivered, so that you’re ready to discuss. Please let us know in the email response which date(s) you’d like to attend.
