    Lola Olufemi

This reading group intends to supplement thinking on key themes related to Lola Olufemi’s ongoing research: imaginative-revolutionary potential, temporality and cultural production. A range of texts including work from Claudia Jones, June Jordan, Stuart Hall and well as material from grassroots political organising movements will be read and discussed collectively.

This reading group is open to all; it is a supportive and peer-led space for thinking and learning together. It is a space for constructive disagreements and critical engagement that is always based on mutual respect, interest, and care. If you have any access requirements, please email us in advance at info@iniva.org and we will do our best to accommodate them.

All texts are read together in the group, you don’t need to read them in advance.

This recording group was not recorded.


Lola Olufemi is a black feminist writer and Stuart Hall foundation researcher from London based in the Centre for Research and Education in Art and Media at the University of Westminster. Her work focuses on the uses of the feminist imagination and its relationship to cultural production, political demands and futurity. She is author of Feminism Interrupted: Disrupting Power (Pluto Press, 2020), Experiments in Imagining Otherwise (Hajar Press, 2021) and a member of ‘bare minimum’, an interdisciplinary anti-work arts collective. Alongside writing, she facilitates reading groups, workshops, occasionally curates and is volunteer co-ordinator at the Feminist Library.
