The UTSA Reading Collective's Commentary

For a couple of years now, I have been having conversations about literature, culture, and ideas with a group of young scholars currently pursuing advanced graduate study at the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA), where they work with the esteemed literary scholar Joycelyn Moody.
