Starting as a space to foster community and discussion among IPCS members and friends, our Reading Groups continue in 2021 with in-person and online formats.
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 this project, bringing vital perspectives and experience to our sessions throughout the year.
In each session, as seen in our reading program, we engage with two texts, while our goal across our sessions is also to work within the spaces between our selected texts.
IPCS READING GROUP IN-PERSON
The in-person reading group meets regularly in the Phillip Darby Reading Room. Numbers may be limited given public health regulations. Throughout lockdown meetings are held online via Zoom.
IPCS READING GROUP ONLINE
Online reading groups present a number of challenges. However, they also make possible new modes of engagement. The online reading group is by no means simply an attempt at rehearsing the in-person experience in digital confines.
Our in-person and online reading groups work with different texts, though share a sense of purpose, shaping our community through regular conversation.
The online reading group meets monthly via Zoom.
If you would like to join either the in person or online reading groups, please contact us.
