Wanderlust: A History of Walking

Would you like to attend a terrific book discussion led by a UT expert without leaving your home? The UT Humanities Center now offers a free public book discussion online! Students, faculty, and members of the public are all welcome. With the support of Union Avenue Books, an independent bookstore, we will help you to keep reading and learning at all stages and walks of life.

On the day of the discussion, you can join a University of Tennessee faculty member in an online book discussion via Zoom. Our UT faculty read widely and deeply into perspectives ranging from the ancients to the moderns, from work in ancient archeology to contemporary poetry, new economic theory, and media studies. Join us to hear an expert in the field talk about the major ideas of a text that you have read, and engage in an enlightening discussion! Learn more:
