General Format of the reading group:

·         Participants will discuss a time for the Fall semester.

·         There are 14 papers mentioned in the talk.

·         We will read through one paper every two weeks until December 2022.

·         You don’t have to attend each time to participate in the reading group.

·         Participants that are interested will be host for an article from the list of 14 papers.

·         The host will curate a list of 4 to 5 questions to get the conversation started from the article that they pick from the list of 14 articles.

·         One possible outcome of the reading group may be to contribute to a blog article for StatTLC.

See you soon!
