Reading List

Here’s where I’m compiling a list of the academic books I hope to read in Summer 2016 and beyond. These are books I’ve either been wanting to read for awhile or know I’m going to need for future research. I’ll continue to add to this list as  I think of more titles. And of course, since I’m taking prelims this summer, working in the Writing Lab, and trying to keep up with my reading and more creative hobbies, I highly doubt I’ll make it through all of these. I am taking an independent study version of my program’s WPA seminar next semester, so I may save some of these books to read in that course.
