In conjunction with Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson’s virtual visit to Miami University on September 9, the Humanities Center is organizing faculty and staff small-group discussions around her 2020 book Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. Both Wilkerson’s visit and the book club coincide with next year's Focus Program (formerly “One Year/One Theme”) on Race and Racism.
The book club will meet in person on the afternoon of Thursday, September 2, the week prior to Wilkerson’s talk. Participants will be randomly divided into small groups of five or six at the event itself. Participation is open to any and all interested faculty and staff members at the university.
For those uncomfortable with the face-to-face gathering, there will be a Zoom alternative:
