Editor's Statement

Reading On
opens a cross-disciplinary space to address the ongoing centrality of reading across the Humanities. Published once a year by the Department of Comparative Literature and the Woodruff Library at Emory University, each issue contains articles, conversations and art that pursue a common theme across disciplinary boundaries, creating a space for the future development of humanistic thought. We have named the journal Reading On because reading poses the problem that makes what we do necessary. Reading On marks our obligation to honor that necessity at a time when social and economic forces threaten to make reading irrelevant.
