Reading group news

Black British Aesthetics Today 1

It’s a whirlwind of activity in the library at the moment as we jump from our hugely successful zines event last week (thanks to all that came, we will be blogging our report of the event next week) to our new library reading group beginning next week.

We have received an overwhelming level of interest from those wanting to be a part of the reading group and we can’t wait to get down to some interesting discussions and debates with you all. Our first meeting will be next Thursday 14th October 6-7:30pm and we will meet on the second Thursday of each month until March 2011.

Our first text is Kobena Mercer’s essay ‘Diaspora didn’t happen in a day: reflections on aesthetics and time’ in R. Victoria Arana (ed.) Black British Aesthetics Today. Cambridge Scholars, 2007.

You can find a copy of this text in the Stuart Hall Library for reference use only prior to the first reading group meeting.

If you are unable to attend the first meeting you can still take part in the online discussions which will appear here on the library blog. A summary of discussions will appear here on the blog following the first meeting as well as a series of follow up questions, so please feel free to take part and get involved in any way you can.

If you still haven’t booked for the reading group next week please email us library@iniva.org to reserve your place.
