Neutral Ground Critical Reading Group



Neutral Ground Critical Reading Group

Introducing: Neutral Ground Critical Reading Group!

You are invited to join the Neutral Ground Critical Reading Group, where we will discuss a piece of contemporary critical theory once every two weeks.

We will be looking at challenging critical texts in a supportive and communal environment. Reading critical theory is really hard, and there is no way to sugar coat it - but, it’s rewarding. The goal of the NGCRG is to bring the reading of these texts into a space where we can help each other through them, and offer one another different perspectives on the ideas we encounter.

For our first meeting, we will be looking at “Time Binds, or, Erotohistoriography” by Elizabeth Freeman, which looks at the way western temporality is constructed, and a few of the ways queer bodies hold and experience time.

Please read the text (available online) a couple of times and come ready to discuss it. Also bring ideas for our next reading.

See you July 12th!
