Abstract

This presentation will make a contribution to understanding the nature of debate in reading groups (i.e., people who meet to discuss books, usually novels). I will report on the findings of The Discourse of Reading Groups - a UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) one-year, funded project (2007-2008) that aims both to gather evidence about contemporary reading practices, and to contribute to a sensitive understanding of social literary argumentation as a contemporary micro-culture.
