Abstract

When discussing and theorizing works of literature which confront difficult topics, collective approaches (reading groups, book circles, etc.) can provide useful and necessary venues/platforms for scholarly work to be done--both in the formation of intellectual thought and toward the bridging of disciplinary communities that might otherwise remain disconnected. This roundtable, which has emerged out of a book club discussion on Toni Morrison's new novel A Mercy, seeks to situate the novel through the scholarly perspectives afforded by the participants' respective disciplines and via the creative energy fostered by collaboration.
