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

Next sessions:

Wed 10 March (5pm CET). Article: "Cities and Sexualities" (Hubbard et. al., 2015)

Wed 21 April (5pm CET). Article: "The Invisible Flâneuse" (Janet Wolff, 1985)

Wed 2 June (5pm CET). A section on social class and the urban from The Worst Street in North London (Jerry White, 1986)

We will be back in September with more sessions!
