What is a Reader? is a multi-campus project supported by the Teagle Foundation’s Big Questions in the Disciplines initiative. Established in 2009 by faculty members in English and Literature departments from Mills College, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and UC Santa Cruz, the group seeks to understand undergraduate literacy today in historical perspective and its implications for the study of literature at the college level.
