Feminist readings, networking and cake! Thanks to Cultivator we’re delighted to be able to host this free event at the end of this month. To be assured of a place please register a place on Eventbrite.

The Feminist Duration Reading Group was set up in London in 2015 to explore lesser-known feminist texts from outside the Anglo-American feminist tradition, combining this with discussions of current feminist issues and urgencies.

On their visit to Hypatia, Giulia Antonioli, Sabrina Fuller, and Helena Reckitt of the FDRG will share texts and inspiration from black feminist writings, Italy and Indonesia.

No advance reading is required as we will read texts out loud together and then discuss.

2pm networking and coffee

2.30-45pm introduction to the FDRG and our visitors Giulia Antonioli, Sabrina Fuller, and Helena Reckitt

3.00- 4.30pm reading and discussion sessions

5.00-6.00pm informal networking and refreshments

More information:

The Feminist Duration Reading Group welcomes everyone to explore the feminist legacy and its resonance in art, thinking and collective practice. If there are enough people who are interested in forming a local reading group we may also discuss the viability of this.
