A space to foster community and discussion among IPCS members, friends and visiting fellows, our Reading Group meets fortnightly.
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.
In each session, as seen in our reading program, we engage with one or two texts, while our goal across sessions is also to work within the spaces between selected texts, experience and vital commitments.
The Theory/Knowledges/Politics reading group meets fortnightly, in-person, at the Institute of Postcolonial Studies, in the Phillip Darby Reading Room. Throughout lockdown meetings have been held online via Zoom.
Guest convenors contribute to our project throughout the year, bringing vital perspectives and experience to our sessions.
Check out the following resources before joining, the 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
We are open to setting up new or online reading groups, so do write to us if you would like join, would like to propose a theme or relevant activity, contact us.
