About Reading Culture

Reading Culture

HCC's Reading Culture was initiated by the national program Bridging Cultures, developed by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Bridging Cultures initiative sought to "engage the power of the humanities to promote understanding and mutual respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives within the United States and abroad." Houston Community College's Reading Culture seeks to expand this effort with a focus on a new text each semester, which can celebrate the diversity of our college and foster better understandings of how these cultures are represented.
