This three year series explores what the interpretive humanities—specifically a certain tradition of attentive or close reading—may offer to those engaged in the cultures and discourses of professionalism and professional education in the fields of law, religion, architecture and urbanism, among others.  The series is co-sponsored by the Department of Comparative Literature, UCHV and LAPA, and funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation's Distinguished Achievement Award.
