The collection of reserve readings are now officially ready at the P&CC. I will be dropping off a copy at Stauffer later today, so it should be processed by the library in the next day or two. The collection includes the readings by Plato, Tertullian, and Artaud.
Everyone has been assigned a seminar – you can now find dates and presenters on the Schedule page.
