Starting as a space to foster community and discussion among IPCS members, friends and visiting fellows, our Reading Group reconvened in late February 2022
In line with IPCS’ aim to address the challenges of the present, our reading group works through influential and contemporary texts on postcolonialism, settler colonialism, and decoloniality, together with other work essaying critical and creative approaches to theory, knowledge and politics. Guest convenors contribute to our project throughout the year, bringing vital perspectives and experience to our sessions.
In each session, as seen in our reading program, we engage with two texts, while our goal across sessions is also to work within the spaces between our selected texts and experience.
IPCS READING GROUP IN-PERSON
Convened by visiting fellow and filmmaker-activist Jasmine Narzani, the Theory/Knowledges/Politics reading group meets fortnightly in-person at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies, in the Phillip Darby Reading Room. Numbers may be limited. Throughout lockdown meetings have been held online via Zoom.
We are also open to setting up new kinds of reading groups or study & planning circles, so do write to us if you would like join or have an idea to discuss.
Please read through the following resources before joining, IPCS’ Reading Group broadly subscribes to these principles:
- Code of Contact developed by the Feminist Autonomous Research Centre
- Safe Spaces Rules developed by Way Over There Collective
If you would like to join the reading group or propose a theme or relevant activity, please contact us.
