Theory Reading Group

This is a new reading group for those simply interested in theory; those interested in theorising practice; and to meet the needs of doctoral students. The group and its activities will link to the SIoE Theory and Methodology seminars.

The group will meet every 4-6 weeks to discuss a particular theorist or theoretical school of thought. Calls for meetings will include a relevant article or book chapter for participants to read before the meeting prior to the discussion it in the meeting. Normally sessions will be on a Wednesday 12.00–1.00, so you’re welcome to bring along a lunch.

The focus of this session will be on the work of Nancy Fraser. Future meetings have not yet been decided but it is anticipated they will include discussion of the work and theories of Bourdieu, Foucault and Deleuze and Guattari among others but this will clearly depend upon demand within the group. All are very welcome.
