Reading or Writing Groups


IRWG reading or writing groups provide a forum for interdisciplinary exchange about a topic. Group participants may plan events or collaborative research projects, or simply use the time and space provided for discussion. Reading or Writing Groups are organized by U-M faculty and/or graduate students and may continue from year to year. IRWG provides meeting space in Lane Hall and some administrative support for these groups.
