The typical academic reading load is a book per week in graduate seminars, but how does one manage with multiple courses and seminars, along with other life responsibilities?
Join Prof. Samer Ali (CMENAS and GISC Director) and the International Institute in this DEI workshop to learn how to read a book strategically and increase analytical engagement.

We will begin with a hard look at the implicit barriers of bigotry, class, gender, and race that have accrued over centuries of western higher education, which the DEI initiative seeks to redress and dismantle. Samer Ali will present concrete hacks to level the playing field, in accordance with the priorities of Title IV and IX of the U.S. Department of Education. By reading strategically, one can actually read and engage (and write) proactively at a deeper structural level than the passive reader. This is a hands-on workshop; bring a scholarly book for practice.
