VCS Department Chair Tom Huhn is the first contributor to Summer Reading Friday, a newly launched series of posts on SVA Close Up featuring suggestions for late summer reading from members of the SVA community. Tom’s picks include five works spanning a wide range of interests and fields, from Adam Smith’s 1759 book The Theory of Moral Sentiments to last year’s The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert.
To see the full list along with Tom’s comments and cover images, visit the post on SVA Close Up.
During the academic year, Tom also curates the VCS Chair Readings, a monthly series of suggested readings for students and other members of the Visual & Critical Studies community. Past entries in the series are available at this page on his website.
