We are grateful for the amazing new resources we have acquired this year for the Stuart Hall Library. For our popular Research Network reading groups as part of the More-than-Human Care series, we have expanded our critical theory section to include books that address issues of global art activism and ecology in the face of climate crisis through the lenses of race, class and gender.
We have also received some generous donations which you will see filling our shelves in the New Year, from Brazilian and South American exhibition catalogues, Middle Eastern artist monographs and a large donation of critical theory on international relations, protest and political resistance narratives in UK from the 1980s and 1990s. This will be available alongside new purchases that will expand on radical writers and thinkers in the collection, fill gaps in the Eastern European art collections and demonstrate our continued links with international publishers.
However, in order to for us to continue our work fostering a culture of learning and researching within the visual arts, we ask you to support us in developing up-to-date collections by gifting a new book to Stuart Hall Library. Any book you purchase will be given a personalised book plate to acknowledge your donation.
We’ve made it really easy to donate a book and have carefully selected the books and resources which we know will greatly benefit our library users from academic researchers to younger audiences. All books donated to the library will carry a bookplate with the name of the donor (unless you wish to remain anonymous), and our sincere gratitude.
If you wish to purchase a book for the library please, click on the Amazon Wishlist link here.
And follow the steps below:
- From the list, add your chosen book to your basket
- Select the delivery address: INIVA, 16 John Islip Street, London, SW1P 4JU
- Include a free personalised ‘gift message’ in the box to let us know your name and what you would like printed on the donation plate
We would appreciate it if you could drop a separate email to firstname.lastname@example.org to us know which book you’ve ordered, so we can thank you and keep our records up to date.
