Virtual Reading Groups

Each Virtual Reading Group will focus on a particular Smithian topic, and a common set of readings will form the basis for our weekly discussions. Each group is facilitated by a professional moderator and is conducted via the Zoom online platform.

Participation is offered at no-cost, and there is no need to be an expert on the topic for discussion! In fact, these reading groups are designed to be appropriate for people engaging with Adam Smith for the first time as well as for established Smith enthusiasts. The only requirement is that participants be eager to read and engage in conversation.
