FRINGE theory reading series
The FRINGE Reading Group engages with urban theory from intersectional perspectives. Participants from all disciplines are invited to join and suggest texts for discussion. We read texts circulated by the session moderator two weeks in advance of the Zoom meeting. Sessions are moderated on a rotating basis to ensure the inclusion of various perspectives.
The Reading Group welcomes academics at all stages of their career and all disciplines as well as artists and members of the public interested in the urban. Contact: Olga Springer.
