"Immanent Frame" contributors report their summer reading picks
For its new section "Off the Cuff," the SSRC's popular blog on religion and secularism, The Immanent Frame, has invited frequent contributors to report on what they read during the summer break. Picks range from classic novels like Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood (1952), to academic volumes such as Secularisms (2008), edited by Janet Jakobsen and Ann Pellegrini.
Several respondents--including Simon During, David Kim, and James Smith--have also provided a glimpse of what they hope to be reading this fall, though others, such as Stathis Gourgouris, refused. "Aspirations of future reading are best not to be communicated, I’m afraid," Gourgouris writes. "Their realization falls far short of one’s expressed appetite."
